Christians Associated for Democracy has translated the most recent (2018) draft of Hungary’s law on the legal status of churches into English. In 2014, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) found that the current church law violates the right of religious freedom. The new draft of the law is intended to address the shortcomings of the existing law. However, the bill still appears to preserve that law’s most objectionable features.

The English text of the law can be downloaded here.
