European Parliament building

The issue of Hungary has been returned to the agenda of the European Parliament plenary session on Wednesday as a result of the EP election campaign, MEP Tamás Deutsch of ruling Fidesz said.

“The left-liberal majority in the body launched another attack against Hungary because of the campaign,” he said during the debate.

The EP session was initiated by the EP’s Green parliamentary group in view of the recent anti-government demonstrations, the amendment of the labour code and the setting up of administrative courts in Hungary.

At the session, European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans said that the EC shares the concerns regarding the state of the rule of law, human rights and corruption in Hungary.

Deutsch said MEPs’ anger against Hungary is rooted in an issue that will determine Europeans’ lives for decades, which is migration. The majority of Hungarians, regardless of party affiliation, want something completely different than these MEPs, he added.

Zoltán Balczó, an MEP of conservative opposition Jobbik, told the EP plenary session that “Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s regime is built on vassalage and corruption, gradually destroying the rule of law and releasing the genie of hatred from the bottle.”

Tibor Szanyi, an MEP of the opposition Socialists, said the government has turned “the merriest barrack of the Soviet bloc into Europe’s new death row.”

  1. As a Dutch person I am ashamed about Sargentini, Timmermans, In ‘t Veld! Their political parties are declining in the polls. Sargentini comes from a ‘politically very conscious’ family. When she was 7 years old, she walked along in the big demonstration against nuclear weapons. Between 1986 and 1992 she visited the Spinozalyceum. She then ‘studied’ history at the University of Amsterdam. Since 1990 she has been politically active, first in the PSJG, the youth organization of the Pacifist Socialist Party and later in DWARS, the Dutch GreenLeft Youth organization. During her studytime she was also active in the (international) student movement. She was secretary of the National Student Union between 1995-1996 and subsequently a boardmember of the European student federation ESIB (in 1998). In 2002 she was elected to the city council of Amsterdam, before she was a duo-councilmember between 1999 and 2002. Sargentini was leader of the group since April 2006. Among other things she worked in the committees on work and income, youth policy and public order. In addition to her boardmembership, Sargentini was ’employed’ within non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) in the field of international cooperation, in particular development cooperation. Between 2000 and 2001 she ‘worked’ as an international coordinator for the European Network for Information and Action in Southern Africa. She then ‘worked’ as an international campaign coordinator for Fatal Transactions, a public campaign about diamonds as a source of funding for wars. Between 2003 and 2007 she was a lobbyist at the Netherlands Institute for Southern Africa (NiZA). Since 2007 she has ‘worked’ as a consultant at the European alliance of development cooperation organizations Eurostep. Accepting non-risky jobs and huge payments with tax money was in her genes. Sargentini was 1 of 5 candidates for the GreenLeft list leader in the 2009 European Parliament elections. As a candidate list leader, she focussed mainly on development cooperation, migration, emancipation and climate change. On 08.02.2009 it became known that she had been elected as partyleader and finally achieved, after 5 rounds, 52.4% of the votes. She remained a member of the municipal council until 04.06.2009. On 07.03.2009 the rest of the list was drawn up by the GreenLeft party congress. During the election the party won 3 seats, including 1 remaining seat. The party won 1.5% of the votes in comparison with the 2004 European Parliament elections. Sargentini is a member of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs and deputy for the committee (there we go again!) Development cooperation. For her ‘work’ for fair trade Sargentini has received a number of prizes: In 2010 she received the ‘Angel of the Year’ award from PerspectieF for her commitment to fair trade and the ‘EU Fair Politician of Year 2013’ of the Foundation Max van der Stoel. On 10.01.2013 she handed over her leadership of the European GreenLeft delegation to Bas Eickhout for personal reasons. She has been a ‘specialist’ on European legislation to tackle fraud and money laundering, including a register of interested parties. In addition, she ‘worked’ on the approach to trade in conflict minerals. In 2014 she led the EU observation mission in the Mozambique elections. All in all a great track record, where free flights and spending nights in luxury hotels are standard options. As of 2017 Sargentini investigated whether the Hungarian government undermined the democracy and the rule of law in the country. She concluded that the Hungarian rule of law was rapidly deteriorated by the policies of the Hungarian government and that President Viktor Orbán pushed aside the values and values of the European Union. Following her report, the European Parliament voted against Hungary on 12.09.2018 for criminal proceedings (Article 7). The strange thing about her ‘research’ is that she only spoke with the leftwing establishment in Budapest, while a thorough ‘investigation’ may be expected that she must talk with all parties to get a clear picture but that was probably for her lost time because she had neglected that. Incidentally, the criticism of her conduct in Holland is growing because political parties with a different view of the ‘situation’ are also being held away in the context of open and transparent democracy! It is well-known that she is a puppet-on-a-string of Soros (Schwartz), the most dangerous person on the planet!
