Was a secret migrant database compiled in the transit zone?
At his press conference on Tuesday, Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács called on Migration Aid to reply to allegations that it compiled a secret database of migrants in the transit zone.
“The Cabinet is awaiting an answer to the question of what the true goal of these databases is and whether they have been handed over to third parties such as other organisations of the Soros network, for instance”, he declared, noting that the Government would also like to know where this data is stored and what other organisations took part in the operation in addition to Migration Aid.
According to Mr. Kovács, concern with relation to organisations that are linked to George Soros has increased further after an investigative report was published in the Hungarian press according to which these organisations performed illegal activities such as the unlawful collection of data.
As an example of the operations of the Soros network, the Government Spokesperson mentioned the fact that an article citing Amnesty International published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on Tuesday “falsely claims that people are being kept prisoner in transit zones on the Hungarian border”.
This is just one illustration of the lies that these organisations are claiming with relation to Hungary and Hungarian border protection”, he said, underlining the fact that in recent years the Hungarian Government has spent a lot of energy on explaining the great efforts it is making at the border.
He highlighted the fact that in contrast the Soros organisations are doing everything possible to undermine Hungary’s credibility and in the interests of other goals with relation to which Vice President of the Migration Aid Foundation András Siewert has also stated are in fact of a financial and political nature.
Mr. Kovács also spoke about the fact that the Government’s goal with relation to submitting the Stop Soros legislative package, and also with legislation aimed at tightening regulations on the transparency of foreign-funded organisations, was to defend the results already achieved in combatting illegal immigration. “
These news reports are uncovering the Soros organisations’ activities in opposition to this on a daily basis”, he added.
At the beginning of his press conference, the Government Spokesperson said that recent articles in the foreign press leave no doubt with regard to the concerns and issues of national security raised by the activities that George Soros’s organisations are performing against Hungary in Western Europe, and particularly in Germany.
Mr. Kovács also referred to the article published on Monday in Hungarian daily Magyar Idők, according to which the Vice President of the Migration Aid Foundation “spilled the beans” to an undercover investigative reporter that George Soros’s alleged acts of human kindness in fact serve the enforcement of his financial interests.
“At the end of the day, it’s all about money. Of that I am sure”, the paper wrote, quoting András Siewert.
In reply to a question, the Government Spokesperson said that as a result of the efforts of the Hungarian people, real earnings in Hungary have been increasing for 61 consecutive months. He stressed that the Government is still not satisfied with the current situation because there is still a lot to do, but we can definitely state that we have begun moving in the right direction, thanks to which everyone can take a step forward from year-to-year.
