It will be decided until September whether Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his environment can be banned from entering the United States, Hungarian site Független Hírügynökség (Independent News Agency) writes.
Miklos Radvany, the vice chairman of an organisation called Frontiers of Freedom which initiated the procedure against Orban, said that a full investigation should be expected on the basis of the Magnitsky Act. This makes it possible for the president to deny visa and freeze the assets of those who violate human rights or get involved in corruption charges.
According to Radvanyi, to report a state leader directly is unprecedented. If the American authorities find the report valid, it will be public. He said that the prime minister, his wife, son-in-law, brother, friend and businessman Lorinc Meszaros, ministers Janos Lazar and Antal Rogan, the chief prosecutor and even the national bank’s president can be put on the list.
