Lázár says Hungary under attack from neighbors

June 23, 2015


At the Hungarian parliament’s national security committee meeting on Tuesday, János Lázár, whose ministry is in charge of the country’s clandestine services, said the Information Office must step up against “anti-Hungarian activities” taking place in Ukraine, Romania and Croatia.

Many neighboring countries are committing anti-Hungarian activities and the clandestine service needs to fight back, he said.

As the Minister Overseeing the Office of the Prime Minister, János Lázár is responsible for overseeing the Information Office’s activities.

Lázár said the Ukrainian government is not allowing the Hungarian government to distribute aid to the about 100,000 ethnic Hungarians living in the country’s Sub-Carpathia region.

In Romania, he said, the government there is prosecuting Hungarians based on baseless accusations and trying to destroy historical Hungarian religious communities.

Citing the MOL-INA scandal, Lázár said the Croatian government is trying to discredit all of Hungary’s business elite with criminal prosecution.
