freelogoOur objective is to provide English speaking readers interested in Hungary with a well balanced view of political activities in Hungary by featuring contents from various printed and online sources together with our own commentaries. We are convinced that Hungary is built on all sorts of different ideas, thoughts and opinions and, despite of the new Media Law, our aim is to provide an alternative and reliable source of information – contrary to the one-sided press of the government – for those who want to hear the voice of a free Hungary.

Former PM Gyurcsány: "Hungary's honour is for sale...

This message was sent by the government to the world when it released a murderer in the hope that in return for the gesture, Azerbaijan will finance Hungary. Our Christian-conservative government sold us for Judas's thirty silver coins. This is an old story; the murder took place in 2004. Azerbaijan's ambassador at that time continuously tried to make contact with the office-bearers of our government, among them, to my foreign affairs and security chief counsellor. He wanted to make sure that an Azeri soldier sentenced for life imprisonment for murder should have the possibility of spending his confinement in his homeland. After having been contacted, members of the prime minister's cabinet consulted their colleagues in the Ministry of Justice, on the basis of which it became clear that Azerbaijan is not able to give any guarantee for the convict not to receive amnesty after his returning home, that is, he can be absolved from the consequences of the murder committed. On this basis, we did not release the murderer. As opposed to us, Orbán has still done that. Why? Because he hopes for something. He hopes for money, lots of money. According to the news, a few billion dollars. How miserable...

The prime minister is playing with Hungary's honour, and not incidentally, with fire. The President of the United States has already addressed the case, and I dare bet, the Russian foreign ministry will not remain silent either. Both Great Powers have only one interest in the region: there should be peace. This is just what is jeopardized by Orbán now. He embroiled Armenians with Azerbaijanis, excited national and nationalist emotions; his decision may destabilize the region.

Orbán or his advisers must know: Moscow's most important ally in the region is Armenia and not Azerbaijan. By this desperately immoral case, we have brought the wrath of Moscow on us in addition to that of Washington. We will be outcasts in the world; the image of an immoral, betraying nation will be seen. Even though, we are not such a nation. By this behaviour, Orbán rates himself, his party and government; not us.

By this matter, the Hungarian right wing has lost the possibility of speaking authentically about moral and abiding human values. They have fallen into sin. Into a dirty, indelible sin. They have become betrayers. They have betrayed honour and betrayed two nations even, they betrayed both Hungary and Armenia.

What has Orbán created here? What does he turn us into? Oh dear!"
