Court of Justice rules Hungarian forced early retirement of judges incompatible with EU law
On the request of the European Commission, the Court of Justice of the European Union today ruled that the abrupt and radical lowering of the retirement age for judges, prosecutors and notaries in Hungary violates EU equal treatment rules.
Vice-President Viviane Reding, the EU’s Justice Commissioner said: ”The Court’s judgment is crystal clear and confirms the Commission’s legal analysis: Hungary’s forced early retirement of hundreds of judges, prosecutors and notaries was against EU law. Hungary must now take all the necessary measures to comply with the judgement as soon as possible.”
