Decision in case 1485/2018/MH on how the European Commission dealt with the complainant’s question about EU funding to Hungary

Monday | 25 March 2019

The complainant wrote to the European Commission asking it to take a position on whether there is a legal basis for it to suspend EU funding to Hungary. He complained to the European Ombudsman because the Commission had not addressed this specific question in its replies to him.

The Ombudsman asked the Commission to reply to the complainant’s question. In its reply, the Commission described in detail the conditions that must be fulfilled for it to suspend funding to Member States under the European Structural and Investment Funds. It also provided details of its proposed changes to the rules. The Ombudsman found that the Commission’s reply was sufficiently clear and comprehensive.

Since the Commission has settled the complaint, the Ombudsman closes the case.
