Trocsanyi: ‘EP left-liberal majority passes judgment without evidence’

The left-liberal majority in the European Parliament acts as if it were a court and passes political judgment without evidence, without giving real reasons, ruling Fidesz MEP Laszlo Trocsanyi said on Tuesday.

Trocsanyi told an event organised by The European Conservative that Hungary’s judicial system was in line with European standards from all aspects. On the EU Justice Scoreboard, Hungary’s justice system and its administration have been granted excellent scores, he added.

Commenting on a report approved last week at the EP plenary session in Strasbourg concerning the 2021-2027 implementation of the Erasmus and Horizon EU student programmes, he said the EP had “robbed Hungarian researchers and young people” of the opportunity to participate, “without explanation of any kind or citing false arguments”.

Trocsanyi said that the EP decision was “outrageous and unacceptable” considering that neither Erasmus not Horizon affect the EU budget. “Hungary’s participation would not endanger the EU’s financial interests under any circumstances,” he said.

He added that it was “shameful” that the EP plenary had made such a decision ahead of the June EP elections.

“The decision was motivated by fear that centrist-right political parties would gain strength not only in Hungary but throughout Europe,” he said.
