If you haven’t read Ambassador György Szapáry’s open letter to David Kramer, president of Freedom House, I would strongly recommend it. While we would prefer to focus on the positive things happening in Hungary, we also feel it’s important to respond to criticism, particularly when it’s biased, misleading or inaccurate. And there’s been a lot of that.

"Ambassador Szapáry’s letter offers an excellent example of a positive, point-by-point response to the misleading information that’s out there and the way prestigious organizations like Freedom House have become susceptible to biased, politically motivated sources.

The ambassador begins by tipping his hat to Freedom House’s significant contribution to the “cause of freedom around the world” and “tireless work in promoting human rights.” All true. In fact, Freedom House played an important role in calling the world’s attention to the events of October 1956 in Hungary and its associates helped deliver humanitarian aid in the early days following the uprising.

Yet, the Nations in Transit study exhibits a strong bias in its assessment of Hungary, full of, as the ambassador points out, 'subjective judgments as well as factually wrong statements.'"
