LMP CALLS FOR JOINT PARLT CTTEE HEARING OVER GRUEVSKI AFFAIR

 

Márta Demeter, co-leader of opposition LMP, on Wednesday called for a special joint session of parliament’s defence and foreign affairs committees over the case of former Macedonian PM Nikola Gruevski. Demeter, who heads the defence and law enforcement committee, said in a statement that she was calling for the committees to hear Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, József Czukor, the head of the National Information Office, and Zsuzsanna Végh, director-general of the immigration and asylum office regarding the Gruevski affair. “It has become clear from the statements made by government officials and investigative media reports that Hungarian foreign offices and personnel posted abroad played an active role in the process that led to former Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, who has been sentenced to prison in his country, entering Hungary and being granted asylum in a remarkably quick procedure,” Demeter said.
