Links between the “Soros network” and the European Commission are obvious, says state secretary

Szabolcs Takács said in Brussels on Tuesday that the links are obvious due to the EC’s immediate attack against an information campaign by Hungary’s government

The existence of links between the “Soros network” and the European Commission has again become obvious, the state secretary at the prime minister’s office has said.

Szabolcs Takács said in Brussels on Tuesday that the links are obvious due to the EC’s immediate attack against an information campaign by Hungary’s government.

According to MTI, the agenda of a meeting of European Union ministers included for the fourth time the procedure against Hungary launched in line with Article 7 of the basic treaty because of deficiencies as regards the rule of law.

Takács said that Frans Timmermans, first vice-president of the European Commission, brought up the issue of the government campaign during another point of the agenda “in a frenzied manner, shouting”, with total disregard to procedural rules.

“The cat is out of the bag,” Takács added and described Timmermans as the “spitzenkandidat of Brussels bureaucrats and the pro-migration elite.” This elite wants to turn the European Union into a continent of immigrants and they have found allies for this endeavor in Hungary’s opposition, Takács said.

He added that Timmermans is trying to make people believe that he can represent the commission without bias while his statements “were reeking of his dislike for the Hungarian government”, Takács said.

“Timmermans’ performance today clearly demonstrated that he regularly meets [US billionaire] George Soros and NGOs supported by the Soros network … which most obviously proves that what we say is reality,” he said.

He added that his role in the commission should be suspended, which the Hungarian government has already requested.
