Opposition figure Botka calls for demolishing border fence amid heightened terror threat

Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács said László Botka’s remarks had “let the cat out of the bag" and “clearly corresponds to George Soros’s scenario"

Mayor of Szeged and opposition Socialist Party figure has suggested that Hungary should demolish it's border fence despite growing terror concerns.

Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács said László Botka’s remarks had “let the cat out of the bag" and “clearly corresponds to George Soros’s scenario." 

Botka is campaigning to be the MSZP’s candidate for prime minister in the 2018 election cycle.

“In the European Union, ‘processes do not indicate that a consensus is likely to develop concerning what must be done along the EU’s borders’, because the recent ruling by the European Parliament ‘is the rejection of the Hungarian border and security policy’ that has enabled us to successfully reduce the level of illegal immigration to practically zero," Kovács said.

According to reports from the secret services there are an increasing number of migrants "ready to pounce in the immediate vicinity of Europe", which indicates that we should expect migration pressure to continue to exist not for one or two years, but for decades or generations," Kovács added.

In light of the terror attack in Manchester, which has so far claimed 22 lives and injured many others, the government spokesperson said that “terrorism has moved to a new level”, because the new element of targeting children and young people has generated universal outrage, even in a world in which terrorism has become global.
