Co-ruling Christian Democrats lawmaker Lőrinc Nacsa said the “Soros network” of organizations supported by US billionaire George Soros is trying to incite hatred between Hungarians and Roma in connection with a school segregation case in the north Hungarian village of Gyöngyöspata.
According to MTI, the lawmaker said this is the reason why they are organizing a protest march in Budapest on Sunday.
On behalf of the ruling parties, Nacsa said the “Soros organizations” financed from abroad have repeatedly tried to interfere in Hungarian domestic politics and exercise pressure in areas such as migration policy.
“The real aim of the Soros network is to push aside the anti-migration national government of Hungary and give way to its own left-liberal puppets,” he said.
The Debrecen Appeal Court in September 2019 ruled that Roma children in Gyöngyöspata were segregated unlawfully at school and their right to equal treatment was violated. The court required the local authority and the school district to pay compensation of HUF 100 million (EUR 297.700) to the children’s families for each year spent in segregation. The local authority and the school district asked the Kúria to review the binding ruling last year.
