Jobbik requests national security report on statements by former justice minister’s ex-husband

The Jobbik head of parliament's national security committee has asked security services to prepare a report on widely reported statements made by the divorced husband of former justice minister Judit Varga, after she resigned from all her positions earlier this month.

Zoltan Sas told a press conference that “dismantling public trust in the national security services by spreading unsubstantiated rumours is unacceptable, but so is ignoring information on unlawful practices in the national security services if they are accurate.”

National security agencies have a duty to monitor all activities that might represent a risk to national security, “be it war, an economic situation, a pandemic or wave of migration”, he said. Since national security services cannot turn to the media when attacked, it falls to the committee to represent them, he added.
