Jobbik: Fidesz pockets profit from residency bond business and keeps terrorism threat

Press release – On May 29 the Parliamentary Committee on Justice had quite a heated debate on whether to put Jobbik’s re-submitted Constitutional amendment on the Parliament’s agenda. The objective of the motion was the same: to prevent the settlement of foreign citizens coming to Hungary either by way of EU allocation quotas or through Fidesz’ residency bonds.

The investigation by the Parliamentary opposition’s shadow committee concluded that the residency bonds generated no profit for Hungary and twenty days were not enough for the authorities to establish if residency bond buyers or their family members pose a security risk. In his Wednesday press conference, the committee’s Jobbik-delegated member Ádám Mirkóczki said that only 12 residency bond buyers and 53 family members have been denied a residency permit so far. “Little do we exaggerate when we say that the whole scheme is designed to hand out a residency permit to whoever has enough money,” the MP said. Mr Mirkóczki ... Read more
