EU threatens Hungary with court cases over Orban policies

BRUSSELS, April 12 (Reuters) - The European Union's executive warned Hungary on Wednesday it risked being sued in court over a number of policies by Prime Minister Viktor Orban that include changes to higher education, non-governmental groups and asylum rules.

"We will review all these issues closely in the April infringement cycle," the Commission's First Vice President Frans Timmermans told a news conference on Wednesday.
