Foreign ministry condemns UN commissioner over Ahmed H comments

Fionnuala Ni Aolain criticized Hungarian laws and procedures, claiming that the country’s government “used Ahmed H in a slander campaign” while running the national consultation survey

The foreign ministry has condemned a letter sent by the UN human rights commissioner to the foreign minister stating that the personal rights of Syrian migrant Ahmed H had been violated.

The ministry noted that Fionnuala Ni Aolain criticized Hungarian laws and procedures, claiming that the country’s government “used Ahmed H in a slander campaign” while running the national consultation survey.

In her letter, the commissioner said that Hungarian terrorism laws violated human rights, consequently the man is not a terrorist.

The ministry responded by stating that “Hungarian laws are clear and serve the security of Hungarians”. Under these laws, anyone who “attacks” the Hungarian border and the police protecting it is considered a terrorist.

“It is unacceptable that pro-migration forces in Brussels and in the United Nations have taken sides with Ahmed H against the Hungarian people,” the ministry said, adding that it considered the human rights commissioner to be “one of George Soros’s people”, given her leading role in the Open Society Foundation.
