The government will ask the EU and the United Nations for clarification concerning “the rather unclear circumstances” surrounding debit cards issued to migrants, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office said at a weekly government press briefing on Thursday.

Gergely Gulyás called it “unacceptable” that migrants should be granted debit cards without personal identification and said it posed risks in terms of fighting terrorism, people smuggling or money laundering.

He welcomed the European Parliament’s recent rejection of introducing a European “humanitarian visa system”.
