The European Commission may suspend the allocation of part of the EU funds to Hungary, because the country has not adopted laws to combat corruption and strengthen the rule of law.
According to the publication, the EC believes that Hungary has made progress in solving problems that cause concern to the European Union, but a number of issues remain unresolved.
Bloomberg notes that the European Commission is still evaluating progress, which will determine the amount of funds withheld. At the same time, the final decision on the suspension of the allocation of funds may be made next month.
It is worth noting that Hungary notified the European Commission of the fulfillment of all its obligations on November 19.
Recall, earlier it became known that, according to media reports, the EU plans to unblock the payment of a large tranche of Hungary due to the fact that the government of Viktor Orban agreed to start reforming the judicial system and start fighting corruption.
