Justice Minister: Hungary will continue to protect the borders of Hungary and Europe

“It is clear that no matter how cooperative the Hungarian government may be, it is again easier for the Brussels elite to initiate proceedings against Hungary by hiding behind well-used mantras and magic words,” the justice minister said.

 

Justice Minister Judit Varga said the Hungarian government will continue to protect the borders of Hungary and Europe, and will make every effort to prevent the creation of international migrant corridors.

In reaction to an opinion of an Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the European Union that the court should partially uphold proceedings by the European Commission against certain elements of the Stop Soros package of laws, Minister Varga said: “Again, another example of how the Western thought bubble works.”

“It is clear that no matter how cooperative the Hungarian government may be, it is again easier for the Brussels elite to initiate proceedings against Hungary by hiding behind well-used mantras and magic words,” the minister said.

Minister Varga said the EC and the Advocate General “unfortunately” agreed that it was “completely acceptable to support, facilitate and organize illegal migration.” Conversely, the Hungarian criminal code classifies such activities as a criminal offence, she added.

“According to the Hungarian Government, the Commission misunderstands the factual situation and scope of the punishable offense, on the other hand, the Brussels board has not been able to substantiate its argument with any evidence,” Minister Varga said, adding that it was still possible for asylum seekers to submit “a letter of intent to lodge an asylum claim” at Hungarian foreign missions.
