FIDESZ-KDNP SUSPECT BRUSSELS LOADING LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY ONTO 'MIGRANT CARDS'

 

Hungary’s ruling parties have reason to believe that Brussels has transferred large amounts of money onto debit cards for “a lot of migrants”, the parliamentary spokesman of the junior governing Christian Democrats (KDNP) said. More and more “migrant cards” are surfacing, with the latest one being found just 200 km from the Hungarian border in Bosnia, Lőrinc Nacsa said. Hungary’s ruling parties have been waiting for weeks for the European Commission to answer their questions about debit cards issued to migrants. The government wants to know how much money the EC has transferred onto these cards and in doing so how many people it has helped enter Europe, Nacsa said.

The spokesman called it “outrageous” that Brussels was “transferring the money of EU citizens to migrants” and refusing to answer the Hungarian government’s questions. He said the current EU leadership should be ousted and replaced by one that puts the safety and interests of European families first.
