It is not an accident that the "scandal" has been exploded in the EU campaign finish; it is also telling that the allegations against Béla Kovács have been released a few weeks after Prime Minister Viktor Orbán spoke with U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden on the phone said Vona.
According to media reports, the U.S. vice-president asked the prime minister to neutralize the Jobbik party, especially the party's most enterprising member with excellent Russian connections, MEP Béla Kovács.
Every information that has been said at the National Security Committee meeting constitutes state secret and has been sealed until 2043. This means that the rumor mill can go on grinding undisturbed while the content of the allegations remains sealed in the next thirty years.
One liberal member of the National Security Committee Bernadett Szél said at a press conference that it was not necessary for a suspect to be a spy to be charged with spying. This is interesting. (This remark recalls the dark '50s when Bolshevik vampires charged anyone whoever they wanted to with spying; even benches in the parks were suspects. They ordered the removal of all benches from certain parks as they could be used by the enemies of the working class to pass on state secretes to foreign operatives).
After the hearing, Jobbik still holds the view that the meeting should have been made public. Gábor Vona said he has not received satisfactory answers why he was invited to the meeting. Now, he is more convinced than ever that the spying allegations against Béla Kovács is nothing more but a despicable attack on the Jobbik party, which most likely has been instigated by foreign entities with the obvious intent to crush the Jobbik party before the EU elections.
Gábor Vona added that recent developments in the country make the stakes of the Sunday's EU parliamentary elections even higher. The question now is not only who will represent Hungary in Brussels, but also whether the governing party can crush the Jobbik party with one million supporters by using trumped-up accusations in order to satisfy foreign interest groups. Anyone that feels this shouldn't be allowed must support the Jobbik party in the Sunday's EU election said the party chairman.
Jobbik member of the National Security Committee Ádám Mirkóczki added that he hoped that the European Parliament would suspend the immunity of Béla Kovács so he could prove his innocence in court.
He also remarked that he was almost certain that the Fidesz party would release more "damning information" (meaning rumors) about Béla Kovács in the last days of the EU election campaign.
