JOBBIK CALLS FOR EVICTION MORATORIUM ON SITE OF RÁKOSRENDEZŐ INVESTMENT

 

The opposition Jobbik – Conservatives have called for halting the 30-day eviction notice issued to residents living on the site of an investment project in Rákosrendező, in Budapest. The 5 billion euro rehabilitation project planned by UAE developer Eagle Hills would bring about the eviction from some 25 flats in the area, lawmaker Daniel Z Kárpát said, and called for a moratorium until residents can be offered flats “equivalent or of higher quality” than their present apartments. “The procedure may be lawful but it is unacceptable that the interests of foreign investors should precede those of the Hungarian residents”, he said.
