Brussels is attacking Hungary with another report that contains distortions and inaccuracies

The Ministry of Interior said the Hungarian police force is successfully protecting the Schengen border of the European Union while fully complying with both EU and Hungarian law

The Hungarian government has said Brussels is attacking Hungary with another report that contains distortions and inaccuracies so they can take away our right to protect our borders.

The Ministry of Interior has rejected claims made in the Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) report, which it compiled during a visit to Hungary last October.

"This report is another false set of accusations and the application of pressure on Hungary," the ministry statement read.

The ministry said the Hungarian police force is successfully protecting the Schengen border of the European Union while fully complying with both EU and Hungarian law.

“It is unacceptable for such accusations to be made against Hungarian police officers based on the false claims of illegal immigrants and the non-governmental organizations that encourage them,” the statement continued.

“Pro-immigration forces have been expecting Hungary to cease its border protection and close the transit zones from the very beginning, not because it wants to stop and control migration but because it wants to organize it,” the statement reads, adding that Hungary is standing by its EU commitments and its duty to protect Europe.

“Hungary will continue to protect the external borders of the European Union from illegal migration in accordance with the rules and expectations of the Schengen Regulation, and will not transfer its border protection,” the statement concluded.
