The Hungarian public expects the government and the police to protect the country, families and common values from external and internal threats, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Saturday.
Speaking at an event in the Buda Castle, Orban said law and order, peace and security in Europe can no longer be taken for granted, and greater efforts are needed to “maintain the order of thousands of years of our own civilization”.
Addressing a ceremony of the National University of Public Service, the prime minister said Hungarians expect the police to set an example when it comes to restoring order, enforcing social rules and recognising law-abiding behaviour. Public servants have sworn to serve and commit themselves to preserving the Hungarian legal system and thousands of years of statehood, he said. “The order that you are defending is born of freedom,” he said.
Minister of the interior, Sandor Pinter, and the defence minister, Tibor Benko, participated in the graduation ceremony.
