Summary:

Under the Hungarian Law on the Execution of Judicial Decisions, courts, on a claim by a judgment creditor, may issue an order obliging an employer to withdraw from the salary of a judgment debtor the sum corresponding to the allowance for the maintenance of children. A split court with a majority of 5 judges against 4 decided that the provision does not violate the right to respect for one's honour and human dignity, but serves the constitutionally guaranteed protection of children.

Supplementary information:

One judge wrote a separate opinion, joined by three other judges.
