European Commission Vice-President Vera Jourová said Hungary’s laws passed in connection with the novel coronavirus epidemic have not “so far” violated European Union regulations.

Speaking on Czech public television, Jourová said she had met Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga and discussed the Hungarian measures in detail with her. “I am not worried yet,” Jourová said.

Jourová said the EC is reviewing whether member states’ regulations passed as part of the fight against the epidemic harm the rule of law. “We will monitor how [Hungary’s] recently accepted laws are implemented,” she said.
