Hungarian Justice Minister Says European Commission Employing Double Standards on Quotas

Fanni Kaszás 2017.12.11.

The European Commission is employing double standards against Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland with the procedure it plans to initiate before the European Court on the issue of the mandatory migrant quotas, said László Trócsányi, Minister of Justice, after meeting his Polish counterpart, Zbigniew Ziobro, in Warsaw.

Trócsányi told MTI that “If the quota scheme – which Donald Tusk, President of the European Council has referred to as ineffective and unviable – is enforced in a court procedure, Poland, along with Hungary and the Czech Republic “will do their best to prevent the enforcement of double standards in Europe.

He added, since the quota resolution on distributing migrants is not actually being carried out by the majority of European Union member states, the court procedure, announced by the European Commission, can be regarded as a political attack.

Last Friday, the Hungarian Justice Minister attended a concert as part of the closing ceremony of the Hungarian cultural season in Poland, where he noted in his speech that the more than 500 events, held in 80 Polish cities, were aimed at generating interest in Hungarian culture.

Trócsányi added that the enormous interest shown in the series of events proved that “Hungarian-Polish friendship is a rare treasure.”
