Hungary: EU is Trying to Punish Countries That Control Their Own Borders

HUNGARY-HEALTH-VIRUS-ORBAN Hungary, Poland veto European Union budget
Bennie Garza | 20 November, 2020, 21:25

Hungary's prime minister on Wednesday called the European Union's proposed mechanism to link the rule of law to budget disbursements for EU nations a "political and ideological weapon", claiming it was created to blackmail and punish countries that reject immigration.

Hungary, together with Poland, vetoed both the budget and the recovery plan on Monday saying at the time it was because the budget law included a clause which makes access to money conditional on respecting the rule of law.

The budget and the recovery package do not have any specific clauses about immigration.

However, he said in practice it would be hard because leaders considered them together in July, and there could be several member states which would find it unacceptable that the recovery fund takes effect, while the future of the budget is uncertain.

"In Brussels today, they only view countries which let migrants in as those governed by the rule of law", Orban said in a statement.

Hungary's Viktor Orban was bullish on Wednesday when he said Europe was attempting to use a "political whip" to punish member states that refuse dto fall in line.

"This rule has been adopted or will be adopted by a simple, qualified majority in order to discipline Poland and Hungary [.] Who can believe that the Polish or Hungarian parliament will ratify a package that is said to contain instruments to stop funding European projects in these two countries", Jansa also said on Tuesday.

But Poland and Hungary remain implacably opposed to tying their future funding to Brussels' judgement on whether their spending is in line with European Union law.

"Once this proposal gets adopted, there will be no more obstacles to tying member states' share of common funds to supporting migration and us (ing) financial means to blackmail countries which oppose migration", he said.

Hungary's justice minister - on whose brief much of these debates fall - accused Brussels of "double standards" in its discussions of the kinds of "rule of law" claims made as a justification of these rule changes. "Orban is afraid that the new rule of law mechanism will harm his autocratic regime".
