Hungarian police force increased by 3,000

The government justified the measure based on the assumption that illegal immigration and the pressure of migration is long-term.

The Hungarian government will increase their police force by 3,000 in the interest of reinforcing the policing of the borders, Bence Tuzson, State Secretary for government communication has said.

According to Tuzson, they will increase the personnel of border policing companies, and the interior minister has been charged with the organization of recruitment and training within the shortest possible time.

The government justifies this measure based on the assumption that illegal immigration and the pressure of migration weighing on the southern border will remain long-term.

Tuzson said in answer to a question concerning the border guards that, based on their assessment, the police can be better supervised and controlled within a single organization, and joint management will therefore remain.

Tuzson also stated that the October 2 referendum campaign is fundamental to making it clear to everyone that we must say no to Brussels’ proposals, and that Hungary does not want forced settlement.
