The court called on Hungary to “provide adequate care and take the necessary steps as soon as possible to ensure that the family circumstances meet the requirements of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights,” a court spokesman told wire service MTI on Thursday.

Article 3 concerns the prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment.
