The original image posted with the story "Orban fails to impress Jewish leaders on anti-Semitism" showed Hungarians in Romania and not the actual demonstration in Budapest. We apologise for the mistake.
EUobserver has removed the article 'Human rights watchdog criticised for Hungary analysis' published on 26.04.2013 from its website. The article incorrectly claimed a document condoning the criminalisation of homelessness in Hungary had been written by the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe. In fact, the document, which appeared on the Council of Europe's website, was penned by the Hungarian government.
The article "Hungary PM dismisses law reform criticism" incorrectly stated that the president of the Constitutional court would have the power to decide the distribution of cases in the law courts. In fact, it is the president of the National Hungarian Judicial Office who would have the power to decide the distribution of cases in the law courts.
The piece "Cameron EU speech brought forward to avoid diplomatic row" stated that the Elysee Treaty led to the establishment of the European Coal and Steel Community. This was incorrect. The Treaty of Paris created the European Coal and Steel Community. The Elysee Treaty was signed in 1963.
The piece "Iceland halts EU talks as elections loom" incorrectly mentioned that Iceland was facing court action in the European Court of Justice. It should have referred to the court of the European Free Trade Association.
The article "Continent's youth more 'European' than their parents, poll says" stated that "three of the largest European parties - the Socialist and Democrats, Liberals and Greens - all intend to put up a candidate for the presidency of the European Commission....". The European People's Party, the largest European political party, will also nominate a candidate.
The article "Prepare to invest billions in the cloud, EU warns businesses" was corrected to say that an additional 3.8 million jobs would be generated by the end of the decade, not 3.8 billion jobs as it previously stated.
The original article "EU cyber-crime chief fears massive proliferation", wrongly reported that the European Cybercrime Centre deals with intrusion, fraud, intellectual property theft and child sexual exploitation. In fact, the centre deals with intrusion, fraud, and child exploitation. It does not deal with intellectual property theft.
In the article "Israeli leader urges EU to blacklist Hezbollah" was The American Jewish Committee (AJC), a Washington-based lobby with an office in the EU capital, wrongly named as The American Jewish Congress.
The article "Spain in political blunder as bailout likelihood increases" was corrected at 16.20 to say Pierre Moscovici is France's finance minister, not Laurent Fabius as it originally stated.
The article "Hawkish step on EU borders outrages MEPs" stated that member states could impose border controls in urgent cases for up to five days. In fact, the time-limit was only a European Commission proposal.
When published the article "Brussels explores creation of 'EU public prosecutor'" mentioned MEP Veronique Mathieu as initiator of new talks on creating an EU public prosecutor's office. In fact the initiative was lead by Slovenian MEP Tanja Fajon.
When published, the story "Greek leftist vows to cancel bail-out, renationalise economy" said leftist leader Alexis Tsipras was 34 years old. In fact, he is 37.
The story "Greek elections to usher in anti-bail-out parties" initially labelled Laos as a Marxist-Leninist party. This was corrected at 15.00hrs to say it is an ultra-nationalist one.
When published, the story "UK minister furious at EU bank talks" said translators left the finance ministers' meeting at midnight. In fact, they worked until 2am when the meeting ended. We corrected the story at 11.20.
