Fidesz to initiate scrapping ‘migrant cards’ in new EP

Hungary’s ruling Fidesz will initiate scrapping the scheme of anonymous debit cards issued to migrants, in the new European Parliament, the party’s communications chief said on Monday.

In the May EP elections Hungarians voted “to stop migration, protect Europe’s Christian culture and stand up for a Europe of nations,” Balazs Hidveghi told a press conference in Balatonfured, adding that Fidesz will represent “the will of Hungarians in Brussels”.

The distribution of such cards is still under way, he said, adding that Brussels has issued over 70,000 of them this year alone.

Over the past years, 500 billion forints (EUR 1.55m) have been deposited with about 2 million such prepaid bank cards without any security checks, Hidveghi said.

“It is unacceptable that Brussels is spending the European taxpayers’ money on these anonymous cards that may allow even dangerous individuals to get access to support,”

he said.
