DK: JUSTICE MIN DID NOT SIGN RESOLUTION ON SUPPORT FOR ICC

 

Hungary’s justice minister was the only EU minister not to sign the joint resolution on supporting the International Criminal Court’s decision to issue an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is accused of war crimes, opposition Democratic Coalition party MEP Sándor Rónai said on Tuesday. Rónai told an online press briefing that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was “discrediting Hungary by defending” Putin, and “cementing Hungary’s isolation” from the rest of the European Union, thereby compromising its EU funding. He said that far from benefiting from Putin’s support, Hungary was being gravely damaged as a result.
