Retraction and apology

June 10, 2014


An earlier version of this article “Constitutional Court limits freedom of expression in Hungary” incorrectly stated that Justice Istvan Stumpf (pictured above) authored the Constitutional Court decision in question.   We are advised by Justice Stumpf’s counsel that he voted against it, and that we incorrectly identified him as a former Fidesz MP when he was neither a member of Fidesz nor a member of parliament while serving as Chancellor (head of the Prime Minister’s office) during the first Orban government.  We apologize to Justice Stumpf and to our readers for the mistakes.
