NIEDERMÜLLER ASKS EPP ABOUT GRUEVSKI AFFAIR

 

Opposition Democratic Coalition MEP Péter Niedermüller has submitted questions to European People’s Party group leader Manfred Weber concerning the case of former Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski who said on his Facebook page on Tuesday that his asylum request in Hungary had been approved. Has the Hungarian government acted in keeping with the law when Gruevski, convicted on corruption charges, was granted asylum, Niedermüller asked Weber. Has the Hungarian government acted in the interest of European security “when it provided a car with a diplomatic licence plate and a one-off entry permit” to help Gruevski’s entry in the European Union, he added. If the EPP keeps Hungary’s Fidesz among its members in order to acquire a majority at next year’s European parliamentary elections, it will be “clear that it has no political morals, only pseudo-principles”, Niedermüller said.
