Corruption allegations against Hungarian citizens by the US in essence an accusation, and the evidence is in the hands of American authorities said Orbán. If they hand over this evidence to Hungarian authorities they will act immediately. "Since Hungary is governed by the rule of law nobody can be prosecuted without evidence," said the head of government. Hungary's policy of zero tolerance requires authorities to investigate any corruption case that sufficiently supported by evidence.
According to the Prime Minister, American allegations of corruption could be cleared up in no time if those holding the evidence make them public. "Many of us do not understand why this is not happening" said Orbán.
In Hungary the law requires residents to report corruption cases to authorities. The Hungarian government doesn't press American authorities to abide by this legal requirement because it doesn't want to increase tension between the two countries said Orbán.
Not that the Hungarian secret services could not obtain the names of those affected by the US punitive measures if it wanted to (meaning, they already know), but this is not the point, this is a matter of principle - those who accuse someone with a crime must name the suspect said PM Orbán.
According to the prime minister, it is unprecedented that a foreign country accuses Hungarian citizens with a crime yet, it doesn't release the evidence to support the claims in the meantime, expect authorities to investigate the allegations. "If we do that it would mean that we can't protect our own citizens," stressed PM Orbán
