The national security committee has dealt with the issue of foreign funds tied to the opposition for the third time, the deputy group leader of Hungary’s governing Fidesz party told public radio.
According to János Halász, the latest meeting revealed that much more money was coming from abroad to “influence Hungarian elections” than we had seen before.
He added that Fidesz group leader Máté Kocsis initiated the declassification of the proceedings of the meeting, because
it is an unprecedented action that blatantly violates the sovereignty of the country, and every Hungarian has the right to know about it.”
As Halász indicated, the committee supported the initiative, and the chairman of the committee – who is always an opposition member by law – also voted in favor of declassification.
The material is expected to be made public in the first half of this week and will be posted on the National Security Committee’s website, just like the previous report.
Halász stressed that he had been informed at the previous meeting that almost three billion forints had been transferred from abroad to the opposition coalition, most probably to influence the elections.
