Judit Varga is putting the cart before the horse

Jobbik warned the Hungarian government months ago that our country might lose significant EU funds on account of the rule of law mechanism to be applied. Unfortunately, we were right.

Instead of criticizing the mechanism, Justice Minister Judit Varga should rather work on helping the enforcement of the rule of law in Hungary once again so that citizens could get back their fundamental rights and democratic freedoms. Considering the expected post-Brexit resource cuts, it would be unfortunate if the Hungarian government’s confrontative policies and corrupt operation led to our nation’s losing additional cohesion funds and other monies.
