The Hungarian Helsinki Committee has also petitioned the Constitutional Court regarding the unjustified dismissal of civil servants. In its decision issued on 15 February the Constitutional Court ruled unanimously that the relevant provisions are unconstitutional. However, the Court annulled the provisions only by 30 May 2011. The HHC would like to stress that those dismissed before 31 May 2011 may launch a constitutional complaint with the Constitutitonal Court.
