Short Update: Extraordinary judicial vacation lifted in Hungary

FT Admin - April 1, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Court closures

The President of the National Judicial Office in Hungary ordered an extraordinary judicial vacation from the 15 March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was extended by another 60 days by the President of the National Judicial Office on 27 March. However, by virtue of Government Decree 74/2020. (III. 31.), extraordinary judicial vacation was lifted earlier, as of 1 April. 

The extraordinary judicial vacation meant in practice that  

  • no trials were taking place, but 

  • criminal investigations continued, including the holding of interrogations and hearings on pre-trial measures by the courts.
