FIDESZ DEMANDS INFORMATION ON MIGRANT CARDS GIVEN TO POTENTIAL TERRORISTS

 

Hungary’s ruling Fidesz expects an “urgent answer” from Brussels as to “how many potential terrorists have been given migrant cards,” MEP Tamás Deutsch told a press conference, in connection with press reports that Hassan F., a Syrian arrested in Budapest and believed to have been an Islamic State terrorist, was in possession of one such card.
Deutsch said that the card found on the suspect was not suitable for identifying its holder, and insisted that “it is a lie that the 64,000 migrant cards issued so far are not anonymous, cannot be used to withdraw cash or that they can only be used in Greece”.
Citing secret service reports, Deutsch warned that “thousands” of IS migrants could have come to Europe among the migrant masses and “their number could multiply”. “Despite that fact, Brussels is enthusiastically distributing anonymous cards credited with hundreds of euros,” Deutsch said.
