National consultation covers issues that weaken Hungary’s security and go against justice

Issues to be addressed by the survey include the payment of compensation to prisoners complaining about poor prison conditions and probation rules pertaining to violent criminals.

The Hungarian government’s next “national consultation” survey to be launched in mid-March will deal with issues that weaken Hungary’s security and go against the public’s sense of justice.

Csaba Dömötör, a Prime Minister’s Office parliamentary state secretary, told Kossuth Radio that the issues to be addressed by the survey include the payment of compensation to prisoners complaining about poor prison conditions and probation rules pertaining to violent criminals.

According to MTI, Dömötör said a common thread in these issues is the presence of foreign-funded organizations.

On the subject of Ukraine’s controversial education law, Dömötör said Ukraine’s new laws violated the right of the local Hungarian community to use its native language. He said it was possible to get all Ukrainian citizens to learn to speak Ukrainian while also allowing Transcarpathia Hungarians to preserve their native language.

Finally, he said Hungary has an interest in having good relations with Ukraine as well as its Euro-Atlantic integration, but if the government did not stand up for the rights of the local Hungarian community, no one would.
