Justice Minister Judit Varga said Hungary will continue to protect its own borders and the borders of Europe.
In response to the European Court ruling, Minister Varga noted on Facebook that the EU Court of Justice upheld the European Commission’s ruling regarding certain elements of the “Stop Soros” law package. The minister said she regretted that the EU court did not take Hungary’s professional arguments into account. “We all know that to the Brussels bureaucracy, the thorn in the flesh was the fact that we criminalized the promotion and facilitation of illegal immigration, as we do not want foreign NGOs to organize illegal migration to Europe,” she said. “In today’s judgment, the Court stated what we would never have thought: Hungary must practically support human trafficking,” Minister Varga said.
“What happens next? Will Member States be punished simply for protecting the continent from mass migration? We no longer have any illusions, but one thing is certain: we will continue to defend Europe. Whether the Brussels bubble likes it or not!”, she said.
