Facebook Statement By Prime Minister Viktor Orbán After A Meeting Of The European Council


Here’s another thing we’ve lived to see. We’re in Brussels, at the European Union summit. This EU summit has been marked by the arrest, on corruption charges, of the left-wing vice-president of the European Parliament. Everyone knew that Brussels was full of corruption, but now it’s reached the stage at which the police have had to take action. The corruption scandal has rocked the European institutions, with house searches ongoing, millions of euros seized by the police, and speculation about which other Brussels politicians could be involved. Many believe that the trail could lead to those at the highest levels. Today the President of the European Parliament has reported to us, and we’ve called for and paved the way for an in-depth and wide-ranging investigation into the corruption scandal in Brussels. It’s time to drain the swamp here in Brussels.
