Hungary’s national security services will present reports on their experiences in border protection over the past three years at the next session of parliament’s national security committee, deputy head of the committee János Halász, of the ruling Fidesz party, said on Monday.
The Sargentini report punishes Hungarians for having repeatedly declared, most recently in the spring election, that they reject migration and the mandatory resettlement quotas, Halász told a committee session on Monday.
Since the report compiled by Dutch Green MEP Judith Sargentini also addresses Hungarian border protection, it affects national security interests, as well, he added.
Committee head Ádám Mirkóczki, of conservative opposition Jobbik, said the Hungarian parliament should discuss many issues in connection with the report but migration is not among them.
Bernadett Szél, who quit opposition LMP earlier on Monday, said the Sargentini report was not a genuine problem.
Zsolt Molnár of the opposition Socialists said his party supports the Sargentini report because it is neither about the mandatory settlement quota nor about putting border proteciton under European Union control.
