Hungarian government demands answers from European Commission over migrant bank cards

Did Brussels know that a Syrian terrorist leader had been given a migrant bank card? Were they aware that they were “funding an executioner of the Islamic State?” István Hollik asks

The Hungarian government has called on the European Commission to answer whether it had information about the fact that a Syrian terrorist had been given a migrant bank card.

Government Spokesperson István Hollik said it is known that Syrian terrorist chief F. Hassan who was apprehended in Budapest had received a Brussels migrant bank card; the terrorist’s lawyer confirmed this a few days ago.

Despite this fact, the EC claims these anonymous migrant bank cards pose no danger at all. On Wednesday, Spokesperson for the European Commission Natasha Bertaud still maintained that there are no anonymous migrant bank cards as they know the identities of the card holders and check them monthly.

Hollik indicated that if this is the case, if the Brussels commission is indeed aware whom they provide such migrant bank cards for, this raises a very important question. Therefore, the government expects a straight answer from the European Commission: did Brussels know that a Syrian terrorist leader had been given a migrant bank card? Were they aware that they were “funding an executioner of the Islamic State?” he asked.
