State Secretary: George Soros's people are in the new European Commission

Zoltán Kovács said it had become clear during the second Article 7 hearing that “[US financier] George Soros’s people are also in the new European Commission” under the leadership of EC vice-president Frans Timmermans.

State Secretary of International Communication and Relations, Zoltán Kovács said it had become clear during the second Article 7 hearing that “[US financier] George Soros’s people are also in the new European Commission” under the leadership of EC vice-president Frans Timmermans.

According to MTI, Kovács said participants in the “completely pointless” hearing “had no interest in hearing the facts or about how Hungary’s government was run”. He added that EU justice commissioner Didier Reynders had made it clear during the hearing that the commission had no intention of ending the procedure.

The state secretary said the commission, certain member states and current European Union president Finland were trying to hold Hungary to a standard “that doesn’t exist anywhere in Europe”. He added that since expectations towards Hungary are constantly changing, “it is impossible to conduct any sensible dialogue.”

Meanwhile, László Palkovics, Minister of Innovation and Technology, said the European Union’s General Affairs Council had no interest in hearing about Hungary’s higher education sector or the country’s research activities.

Palkovics added that those who had earlier expressed concern over the state of academic freedom in Hungary were no longer asking questions about the issue, because they were now satisfied that it was not under any threat.
