JUSTICE MINISTER DEMANDS APOLOGY FOR 'SMEAR CAMPAIGN' AGAINST HUNGARY

 

People who “coordinated the international smear campaign” against Hungary over its corona measures should now “apologise to the Hungarian people”, Justice Minister Judit Varga said, insisting that the European Commission had confirmed the measures were consistent with EU law. “For weeks, from Budapest to Brussels, they’ve been doing nothing but accusing Hungary of building a dictatorship,” Varga said on Facebook. “They’re spreading obvious lies like claiming that the operations of Hungary’s National Assembly have been suspended or that lawmakers’ supervisory powers over government decisions have been weakened.” Varga said the reality was that parliament was operating as normal, while MPs had greater control over ending the state of emergency than many of their European peers.
