The four Visegrad countries – Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia – along with Italy will vote against EU-approved sanctions on Hungary for refusing to take in EU-mandated quotas of Muslim invaders posing as refugees.
Hungarian leader Viktor Orban has rejected a report by the EU which says the country is failing to respect the rule of law. In a speech to parliament on Monday Prime Minister Viktor Orban promised that Hungary would now take legal action against the report.
Brussels says it’s also concerned about the weakening of other democratic values such as the freedom of expression and the rights of minorities and migrants. “This report can only be described as an absurd collection of lies. The way it was adopted clearly infringes the Statute of the European Union, even a law student can see that,” Orban said.
