Counter terrorism Center Hungary Budapest terrorism

Budapest, December 20 (MTI) – The authorities have no intelligence that would suggest a terrorist attack on Hungary in the making, the prime minister’s chief security advisor said on Tuesday.

Commenting on Monday’s attack in Berlin, György Bakondi told public television’s new channel M1 that police and the security services were doing everything possible to obtain as much verifiable information as possible “so that if anything were being prepared, then it could be prevented to ensure that the Hungarian people have a safe and peaceful Christmas.”

The ministry of interior said in a statement that Hungary’s counter-terrorism coordination council had not raised the threat level and it would maintain the current medium level. At the same time, the police presence on the streets and shopping precincts and malls will be enhanced, particularly in light of the period of Christmas festivities, it added.
