After the clear and unequivocal decision made by Hungarians at the parliamentary elections on April 3, it is high time that respect should be shown and accusations stopped against
the country, ruling Fidesz MEP Balázs Hidvéghi said on Wednesday in reaction to a recent report on Hungary. Hidvéghi said on Facebook that the European Parliament’s Committee on
Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) was scheduled to meet this week and “a report condemning Hungary is again on the agenda”. Following the critical reports of
rapporteurs Rui Tavares and Judith Sargentini in the past, the new report has been drafted by Gwendoline Delbos-Corfield who visited Hungary a few months ago heading a LIBE
committee, he added. Hidvéghi, who is a substitute in LIBE, said that Delbos-Corfield had prepared a “pre-written verdict” and consulted organisations linked to US financier George
Soros. At the April election, however, Hungarians “unequivocally rejected these lies, they rejected Brussels’ arrogance and constant lecturing,” Hidvéghi said.
