Nationwide state of emergency is declared in Hungary

One of the first foreign newspapers to report that the Hungarian government had declared a “migration emergency” was the Daily Express. It ran the story shortly after Sándor Pintér, accompanied by government spokesman Zoltán Kovács, gave a press conference at 11:30 this morning on “decisions arrived at by the government of Hungary against illegal migration and in the interest of the safety of the borders.” Actually, Hungarian journalists and foreign correspondents were forewarned as early as 5 a.m. that something was underway.

Let me state right at the beginning that we are still not entirely clear what this “state of migration emergency” entails. We are in good company. Gergely Gulyás, deputy chairman of Fidesz and deputy leader of the party’s parliamentary delegation, also doesn’t know in what way this nationwide state of emergency differs from the one introduced last fall in three or four counties along the Serbian and Croatian borders. Thus, we have to rely on what Pintér decided to share with the public this morning.

The justification for the emergency situation is the decision of the Slovenian, Croatian, and Serbian governments to admit only migrants with valid passports and visas. There is a likelihood that tens of thousands of people already in the territories of these three countries will commit acts of violence. So, just in case, the Hungarian government is sending 1,500 soldiers to the borders. The decision was made to build new roads if necessary for easy access. And to make sure that nobody can sneak through the fence at night, they will electrify the whole area. These new measures will cost another 7.3 billion forints. For the time being, they will not build a fence along the Romanian-Hungarian border, but they are ready to install one at any time.

Those who followed the events that led to the introduction of emergency measures in the fall should immediately recognize that something is seriously amiss here. The declaration of an emergency situation as a result of migration doesn’t conform to the government’s own law that was enacted last fall, on the basis of which the emergency was declared. According to the law, such an emergency situation can be introduced only (1) If the number of asylum seekers is (a) during one month on average 500 a day or (b) during two subsequent months 750 or (c) for a whole week more than 800. (2) If the number of asylum seekers in the transit zone (a) during one month is on average 1,000 daily or (b) during two subsequent weeks on average is 1,500 people daily or (c) during one week on average is more than 2,000 daily. (3) If a given settlement is under threat as a result of the influx of refugees. At present none of these justifications exists.

Every time the Orbán government pulls a fast one, like this introduction of “migration emergency,” critics of the government are certain that the real goal is to divert attention away from the problems that plague the country, like education and healthcare. The teachers’ revolt is especially frightening because, although three weeks have gone by, the legitimate leaders of the teachers still refuse to sit down at that roundtable with the government representatives. Moreover, today Medián came out with a poll that revealed that more than three-quarters of the population are behind the teachers. Two-thirds of the people would even accept a teachers’ strike if it comes to that.

I don’t share the view that looks upon every move of the government as a diversion. I consider it too narrow a focus on domestic affairs. The announcement of the “emergency measures” right after Orbán’s arrival from Brussels indicates to me that he is responding to the outcome of the negotiations, which was not to his liking. From what I have read about the negotiations, I gather that a common solution is close at hand, a solution that doesn’t fit Viktor Orbán’s plans. Moreover, his close allies– Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic–were not listed among the countries that had violent objections to the solution that is being hammered out at the moment between Turkey and the European Union. His closest ally, Robert Fico, is in deep trouble after a less than successful national election. It is not at all clear whether he will be able to form a government. At any event, I believe that the introduction of the emergency decree is more a message to Brussels and to some of the member states than a cover-up of domestic problems. He wants the countries that are currently contemplating closing their borders to the migrants to follow Hungary’s example.

That doesn’t mean that Orbán doesn’t find the introduction of the emergency measures useful domestically. The most often cited reason for such actions is to whip up fear in the population, but I don’t see much need for that at the moment when over 80% of Hungarians wholeheartedly support his refugee policy. I can’t quite agree with Viktor Szigetvári, chairman of Együtt, who described the announcement as part of Fidesz’s hate campaign. Orbán already planted the seeds of hatred in Hungarian soil, and now his main concern is a power play in the international arena. On the other hand, Szigetvári is right in saying that with his consistent opposition to common European policies he is serving Russian interests. I also think that DK’s claim linking the emergency measures with Fidesz’s campaign for the referendum on refugee quotas is mistaken. As we know, if the Kúria and the Constitutional Court approve the referendum question, which is not at all sure, the whole procedure will take months, if not an entire year. Viktor Orbán normally doesn’t look that far into the future. He usually has some immediate goal in mind.

There is one domestic cause that might be served by the introduction of emergency measures. Let’s not forget that March 15 is a national holiday, for which several anti-government demonstrations are being planned, the largest being a huge demonstration by the teachers, healthcare workers, unions, civic groups, sympathizers, and members of the opposition parties. This demonstration, given the support measured by Medián, will most likely be very large. In pouring rain and with much less preparation the organizers managed to bring 20-30,000 people together a few weeks ago. The next one might be twice as large or even larger. Of course, we don’t know whether under these “emergency” measures such demonstrations will be deemed unlawful or not. After all, we still know nothing about the details. But if the suppression of the demonstration is what the government has in mind, I hope that it will think twice about going through with it. What would have been a peaceful demonstration might become something very ugly and dangerous for the Orbán government, especially if they have soldiers with weapons patrolling the streets of Budapest.

I expect you are right Éva, and Orbán is mad at Brussels, so, like the little tantrum-ish schoolboy that he is, is getting his own back at the EU.

Also, declaring a state of emergency is a good excuse to whip up fear to try to reduce the numbers planning to attend the demo on the 15th.
Won’t keep me away.

I wholeheartedly agree. Although the possibility of “illegal immigrants” trying to get into Hungary is a real possibility, I believe this measure is less about the immigrants than about the March 15 demonstrations. I am still curious how are they planning to deal with the 5000 invited Polish guests, and who pays for them to be there. An other thing is that under the “new measures”, Orban can put his hand on emergency money from the MNB, and because if the nature of the spending could “sacrifice” state security, he can fight the constitutional court.

Once again I keep wondering: did anyone informed the Poles involved, that there is a “nationwide state of emergency” is in effect right now? And I assume it wouldn’t be lifted during the next five days, if ever..! Are they prepared to ascend to the ‘good old glorious’ Jaruzelsky times, when the police have the right to stop and frisk you whenever they pleased? All this sacrifice for a megalomaniac moron — yes, the name is Viktor Orbán, you’ve guessed right — who has nothing to do with Poland and the Polish people, whatsoever? Wouldn’t it be reasonable to inform the mislead Polish masses, just what are they going to face in Budapest? Alright, I may have mistakenly applied the same rules to the Poles as it effect the Hungarians — my wrong in this case — but if everyone supposed to be treated equally, then they are going to have ‘some’ experience for sure. Well, there is also a possibility that I still trying to see Hungary as a (pseudo) democracy, and this clouding my views, I apologise for my mistake… But still, a couple of thousand people goes there just to be persecuted..!

Much has been written in praise of Mr. Orban’s strong and determined migrant policy, principally, of course, that he alone, “stopped the flow of migrants”. But it is all PR (aka BS). What he did, along with all the hateful anti-migrant propaganda and advertising campaigns and conceited puffery about “Christian” Hungary, was to build a fence along the border with Serbia (and we don’t even know who got the contract for the razor wire). Contrary to the propaganda nonsense, this didn’t “stop” the migrants but diverted them towards Croatia. A bold and statesman-like decision! All the usual Fidesz sycophants lined up to praise the far-sighted vision of the Great Leader, including the guy who lied about his qualifications and gave anti-Muslim rants on any available government TV mouthpiece as well as members of the Hungarian Apostolic Cat’lic church who don’t forget where their money comes from.

Well put. ‘Viktor Veto’ classic!

Orban’s razor wire comes from……. Hungary!

The German manufacturers of ‘NATO’ wire stopped selling it to him because of his illegal use of it “below two metres” – it is only intended for topping a fence.

(This is to reduce wildlife harm and human wounds – which can be severe.)

So Orban started manufacturing his own.

It is manufactured in prisons by prisoners – and it’s a nice little earner.

And he doesn’t care who he sells it to – or how they use it.

There have been dreadful pictures of wildlife who have been caught up in it and lacerated themselves to death. This is consistent with some other cruelty that I have seen and that Hungarians are capable of.

Migrants who have run the gauntlet have also received serious injuries – it is so sharp that once snagged is very difficult to remove without incurring further cuts.

I hope Orban’s Hungary is called to account when the EU sorts out the irregular migrant problem.

For your reference here is the agreed text of the meeting:
http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2016/03/07-eu-turkey-meeting-statement/ Not a single word directly related to Hungary, a lot about the solidarity with Greece (and Turkey) and other non EU countries on the Balkan’s route, on the contrary. I found this three points relevant to Eva’s topic:
h) take any necessary measures immediately in respect of any new routes opening up, and step up the fight against smugglers;
i) take forward, as a matter of priority, all the elements of the Commission roadmap on getting “back to Schengen”, so as to end temporary internal border controls and re-establish the normal functioning of the Schengen area before the end of the year.
This document does not establish any new commitments on Member States as far as relocation and resettlement is concerned.
Other site worth exploring: http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/meetings/international-summit/2016/03/07/
PS: The government is planning to reduce the allowances of refugees (aka illegal migrants) and the space they may use for camps.

London Calling! Anything the lying toad Zoltán Kovács is involved in is monkey business and always fishy. Orban’s ‘drama queen’ – histrionic- announcement of a crisis (for it is undoubtedly 100% Orban’s decision) serves two purposes. 1) – Self-justifying his continuing feud with the EU – using the refugee issue as dog whistle politics to keep the issue alive for his electorate. (“Our wonderful saviour is protecting us” – queue ‘andrea’ on this blog here). For Fidesz’ future he MUST keep being seen by Hungarians as dealing with the ‘existential’ threat. (Kim Il Un – rule book, principle one.) 2) – Yes, to divert attention away from domestic problems. (Kim Il Un – rule book, principle two.) ‘Domestic Diversion’ is the easiest – he will easily crush any dissent from the teachers, doctors and other inhabitants. Whilst Budapest may attract many demonstrators his media will show how chaotic other countries are by showing more English floods and misbehaving students – pictures easily obtainable from our free press (queue webber here – can you do some more research please?).

Well reasoned post, again. I agree — this is mainly about the EU situation and only secondarily about domestic matters.

I haven’t the slightest doubt that the already existing legal regime already gives a lot of “legal” opportunities for the government to suppress and surveill the political forces in any way opposed to Orban. I’m certain that the government has been wiretapping the mobile phones/internet connections of dozens of figures deemed import and dangerous such as the leaders of the teachers’ trade unions.

Orban is the cornered rat who – as we know from Vladimir Vladimirovich – jumps on you if there is no other way.

Only Orban can’t really jump on the EU (he hasn’t got the nukes and is being financed by the EU) so what he does is he takes desperate, confusing, bizarre steps. He is stirring shit in other words.

What I am afraid of is that in order to create chaos and be able to act really tough (a kind of war president) Orban will let innocent people die. I’m sure in his mind he is already waging war and as we know in a war any and all means are allowed.

Guest

Wiretapping. Yes.

It is completely uncontrolled in Hungary. Orban’s legislation requires every comms company to provide remote access in government offices for them to run queries on the databases without detection (although the companies will be able to measure and monitor CPU usage and system logs outside of their own – they know!).

Orban can even keep tabs on his own polititians – in the privacy of their own homes.

However it is illegal in Hungary to even mention it (Under RIPA in England it’s called’Tipping Off’).

The history of the whole population spying on the whole population in Hungary has desensitised it to concerns about this type of surveillance – and the seriousness of the breach of civil liberties in the ‘commocracy’ that Hungary is.

Yes Kader still lives – and all in Hungary are still ‘good little communists’!

They o not want to stay in Hungary. Your 40 000 migrants inside in Hungary is as not correct!They try to travel through.
Also, the crises is still continuing because of the “help”the favourite leader of Orban and Jobbik, Putin. “Only a third of 5,000 Russian airstrikes directed against Isis” In fact most civilians are fleeing because of the airstrikes that are directed at civilian targets like homes and hospitals.

According to the latest “developments” the Hungarian government planning to put them in even more inhuman circumstances than today, beside to cut down their alimonies.

I suspect one of the reasons that Orban has declared an emergency is because his fence is a waste of money. It’s too long to protect – and why he is holding off building the Romanian stretch.

There is much evidence that many irregular migrants are crawling under it – because they have to crawl under someone’s!

Orban needs to keep up the pretence of the ‘threat’ to justify his fence.

But – doh! – just as before – if he just gives them freedom they will pass straight through. No one wants to stay in Hungary!

All that expense, fences, water canons, police, TEK and administration. Billions of €! – (But think of all that creamed off corrupt moolar!).

Of course this is Orban’s version of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy – dream up an ‘existential’ threat – then be a Saviour solving it.

The stats are rising – but if Hungary let’s them through unmolested – the problem disappears. Less than 3000 have applied for asylum in Hungary with 250 getting it – during the whole emergency.

How the Hungarian population swallow Orban’s Munchausen beats me.

Orban thinks Hungarians pay only a little tax thanks to his greatness.

http://index.hu/gazdasag/2016/03/10/mkik/

For his information.
Say, you buy something in a store for 100 forints, from your net salary.

value-added tax: 27 forints.
you just handed over 127 forints to the cashier:

income tax = 28.64661
retirement = 19.09774
health care = 13.36842
unemployment insurance = 2.864661
total of four taxes = 63.97743

your gross salary spent = 190.9774

your employer has also paid: 54.42856 forints (28.5%) to the government on your gross salary.

The total money the Orban government has received for the 100 forint purchase is = 145.406 forints.

Repeat.
seller receives 100 forints (40.75%)
government receives 145.4 forints. (59.25%)

Guest

Thank you Tappanch. I’ve always wanted these figures and you present them very clearly.

This level of taxation is shocking – particularly on the poor. And when you consider 27% (and more – the fat tax?) on food it’s no wonder many up sticks and leave.

It’s not the good pay abroad. It’s the poor pay at home.

My partner had a very respected job in a bank – but still needed to work in a laundry to realise that she still couldn’t keep her head above water.

And yet as soon as she stepped into England she earned four times as much.

Mortgage soon paid through hard work as a visiting health assistant (she luckily learnt to drive and adapted to left-hand drive immediately) – she had to work for a year as an orderly – washing floors in a hospice – before stepping on to the nursing career path.

When she qualifies as a nurse she’ll easily earn ten (yes 10!) times a bank teller’s salary.

Not so in the EU Commission report.

H was allocated the highest per capita amount EUR 316, CZ 299, PL 288, ROM 163.
H gets most as 3.2% GDP, PL 2.9%, ROM 2.5%, CZ 2.1%.
However, even with one of the highest absorption rate of the largest grants H is at the bottom in the GDP growth comparison.

There are other payments too, e.g. to agriculture.

Hungary has 5 614 970 hectares of arable land by the official EU statistics.
Say, the owners (or users) get 220 euro/(year*hectare) average EU payment.
(I have to find an updated number for this).

5614970 *220 *7 years = 8.65 billion euros.

The EU target “flat” rate is 267 euro/hectare in the current cycle.
