The justice minister said certain provisions of the European Union’s First Mobility Package, adopted on Wednesday, are in conflict with fundamental market freedoms of the community as well as its Green Deal aimed at climate neutrality.
The minister said the government had hoped that “what had become an unprecedented level of criticism directed at Hungary would end and those who made such outrageous claims about the country might take a moment for self-reflection”.
The government’s primary concern is the protection of human lives. Those voicing unfounded concerns about democracy and the rule of law in Hungary are fighting an imaginary enemy. Meanwhile, we’ll keep fighting a real one: the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unlike some of the previous efforts, which were directed solely at Hungary, the Finnish government is now set on withdrawing funds from a number of EU member states. Minister of Justice Judit Varga attended the General Affairs Council meetings on Tuesday where ministers discussed the Finnish presidency’s budget proposal. She had a few choice words following the meeting.
Judit Varga said Hungary had been the target of a “witch hunt” for over a year due to its insistent “rejection of migration”. She said the Hungarian government has taken “a great step forward” in protecting Hungary.
Today’s hearing at the EU’s General Affairs Council was nothing more than that. They have camouflaged it as a legal process, but it’s a revenge campaign waged by the political forces who drive a pro-migration agenda and remain determined to punish Hungary for our opposition.
“Hungary rejects the draft in its current form because it will result in the biggest cutback in cohesion funds for the Central European region and Hungary within it, which goes against the principles and goals of this policy,” Minister Varga said.
Judit Varga said the Justice Ministry will set up a workgroup to review issues such as the boundaries of freedom of expression and the censorship exercised by big tech companies such as Facebook and Google, as well as taxation and data protection.
