Emberi Jogok Európai Bírósága: Magyarországnak is biztosítania kell a transznemű emberek nemének jogi elismerését 

A five-years long legal battle has been concluded at ECtHR today: the Court ruled that Hungary must allow legal gender recognition not only for Hungarians, but also for lawfully settled non-Hungarian citizens, such as refugees. The ruling comes two months after the Hungarian Parliament passed a law banning legal gender recognition altogether. 

Ádert nem zavarja az emberi jogok megsértése, aláírta a transzneműek nemének jogi elismerését ellehetetlenítő törvényt

The President of the Republic has signed the law that makes legal gender recognition impossible despite human rights concerns raised by domestic and international bodies.

Almost two years after the suspension of gender and name change requests, Parliament has passed a bill that prohibits the legal gender recognition of transgender people. Although the European Parliament, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and other international players opposed the bill, the Government did not refrain from introducing a law violating a constitutional fundamental right. LGBTI organizations have now turned to the President of the Republic asking him to send the law for review to the Constitutional Court.
