State Secretary says ECtHR lawsuit is the new method of Soros and his network to undo the European legal system

Pál Völner said the Soros network has realized that certain national governments are preventing them from settling hundreds of thousands of migrants in Europe. Therefore, if legal order is dismantled, a migration wave stronger than any so far may hit Europe, he warned

State Secretary Pál Völner says the lawsuit at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) regarding Hungary’s deportation of two Bangladeshi asylum seekers is a “Trojan horse” used by “international pro-migration forces” to dismantle regulation designed to protect Europe.

Völner told Magyar Idők that the lawsuit is the new method of US billionaire George Soros and his network to undo the European legal system.

The state secretary said they have realized that certain national governments are preventing them from settling hundreds of thousands of migrants in Europe. Therefore, if legal order is dismantled, a migration wave stronger than any so far may hit Europe, he warned.

Last year the ECtHR said that Hungary had violated the European Convention on Human Rights by detaining the two asylum seekers in the Röszke transit zone. The court also said that authorities later sent them back to Serbia, which the ECtHR said had put them under the risk of facing inhumane treatment in the Greek refugee reception centers.

Astonishingly, the court ordered Hungary to pay the asylum seekers 10,000 euros each in compensation. In addition, the state was ordered to pay 7,500 euros in legal fees to the Helsinki Committee, which had taken on their legal representation.

Hungary appealed the ruling. The procedure before the Grand Chamber of the ECtHR started last Wednesday and a ruling is expected within a year.
