As @Europarl_EN rapporteur on the #RuleOfLaw situation in Hungary, I am extremely worried @EU2021SI hasn't made any progress with the #Article7 proceedings.

Yet, within the last 6 months, Fidesz has managed to further deteriorate democracy within its own country. Since June⤵️
🔴 The anti-#LGBTIQ law entered into force, banning any cultural content in school education programmes, films or advertisements "promoting homosexuality".…
🔴 @FbdnStories published the #PegasusProject with @AmnestyTech , revealing the abuse of the Pegasus spyware by numerous governments.

Hungary is the only EU member state which allegedly used the spyware against its own opponents & journalists.…
🔴Ahead of the 2022 elections, Fidesz keeps on actively locking up the administrative & judicial system, by appointing its allies to key positions.

Here, the example of the new leadership of the Media Authority, in place until 2030:…
In September, we went to Budapest on a fact-finding mission with @iwiseler @VollathBettina @MalinBjork_EU & @donath_anna

Our conclusions are clear: the situation has deteriorated since 2018 & we are seriously concerned about democracy in 🇭🇺…
It is now up to @Europe2022FR to be up to the task & take immediate steps to continue the #Article7 procedure.

🇪🇺 member states cannot remain silent when one of them follow a deliberate path towards autocracy.

Today, the European Parliament will vote on the EU-UK Trade & Cooperation agreement.

Here's what is missing from the agreement 🧵⬇️
Strong protections on data protection, privacy & digital trade.
Without proper safeguards, the continued sharing of PNR & Prüm data is a real concern for us.
Some parts of the digital trade chapter are good, but we strongly oppose this TCA being used as a 'model' trade agreement.
Migration - the EU-UK TCA does not include provisions on future cooperation in the field of asylum & migration post-Dublin (only the Joint Political Declaration on Asylum & Returns). Family reunification will be much harder, including for unaccompanied minors.
