Parliament leaders write to Commission over draconian draft laws on teachers & whistleblowing
The leaders of the main political groups in the European Parliament, on the initiative of the Greens/EFA Group have co-signed a call to the Commission on the Hungarian government's law targeting teachers, and the whistleblower law, which could be used against the LGBTIQ community.
On Friday, the Hungarian President, Katalin Novak, rejected the Whistleblowing law as going beyond the EU Whistleblowing Directive and sent the draft law back to the Hungarian Parliament. Teachers are currently protesting in Hungary against the law that would limit their freedom of expression, labour rights and could lead to them being spied on.
The letter co-signed by the leaders of the Greens/EFA Group, EPP, S&D, Renew and the Left is available here.
