Fidesz MEP Tamás Deutsch has accused Budapest mayor Gergely Karácsony of “siding” with European commissioner Vera Jourova and Katarina Barley, a European Parliament vice-president, who, he insisted, had “insulted and attacked the Hungarian people”.
Deutsch told journalists in Brussels about an open letter that several Hungarian city mayors had signed in support of the two EU officials. The Fidesz MEP accused Karácsony of “arrogance” and lying to people abroad about domestic affairs, adding that his behaviour was unworthy of his office. “Hungary rejects lies as firmly as possible,” Deutsch said.
