Jobbik submits bill that would require security checks of cabinet members
This week Jobbik is going to submit a motion to amend the national security act because they believe the government should be subjected to a national security vetting every second year, announced Jobbik’s spokesman Ádám Mirkóczki in his Budapest press conference.
Explaining that Hungary’s governing party had been using billions of the taxpayers’ money to brainwash and instigate the society on account of an alleged Soros Plan, Mr Mirkóczki said Fidesz pretended as if Hungary had been facing an unheard-of challenge posed by one person. In contrast, the MP pointed out that genuine national security risks appearing in Fidesz’ circles were revealed on a daily basis, and they were much more real than the existence of a Soros Plan.
As we wrote few days ago, Jobbik presses charges against Goerge Soros. If the police refuses to start an investigation, then we will have official proof that the Orbán government brainwashes our people, Jobbik said.
Such risks include:
- the anomalies related to the residency bonds,
- the Moscow visa factory and the Szilárd Kiss affair,
- the Azerbaijani monies landing in Hungary under suspicious circumstances,
- the infamous Pharaon scandal,
and the case of the honorary Jordanian consul failing to pass the security vetting conducted by the Counter Terrorism Centre.
Emphasizing that some of the key players in the listed affairs had had confidential and business relations with Prime Minister Orbán, his family members and circle, Mr Mirkóczki noted that these business deals had often involved government officials and their relatives, too.
“How is it possible that the members of any government do not need to get a national security clearance?” the MP asked the rhetorical question,
adding that the above cases involved the risk of foreign secret services blackmailing and manipulating individuals to gain ground in Hungary, so these potential threats needed to be investigated and prevented. Mr Mirkóczki explained that the new amendment of the national security act would stipulate a mandatory biennial security vetting of government members.
“The reason why it is so important is because a government member may potentially get into contact with many foreign agents and intelligence services in two years,
so the security of our country requires that these people be vetted every second year,” he concluded.
