Hungary’s Civil Liberties Union (TASZ) has offered free legal assistance to kuruc.info, an internet portal recently condemned by a Hungarian court for publishing an article in 2013 denying the Holocaust. The court ordered that the article should be blocked. TASZ subsequently questioned both whether Holocaust denial should be criminalised, and if rules under which a wide range of internet content could be blocked are in line with the Constitution. “TASZ is convinced that making certain ideologies taboo through legal means is incorrect and harmful,” the organisation said. It suggested that a falsification of historical facts should be combated through education and through the state’s commitment to paying tribute to genocide victims, rather than through the penal code. Blocking internet content – with the exception of certain cases such as paedophilia – would ensure far too great authority for the government to silence opinions it disapproves of, TASZ added.
