Bakondi warns of increasing migration

June 29th, 2020

Since the beginning of the year, 40 percent more illegal entry attempts have been reported from Hungary's southern borders than in the first half of 2019, Gyorgy Bakondi, the prime minister's chief security advisor, told a press conference on Monday. In the first six months of 2020, a total 13,189 migrants tried to enter illegally, while procedures have been initiated against 161 suspected people smugglers, more than in the whole of last year, Bakondi said. He warned that some 150,000 migrants are staying in Greece, while "the pressure of migration is weighing more and more on Turkey and Italy, too". "Any easing (of immigration restrictions) could increase security and health risks for Hungary, trying welfare services and jeopardising jobs," Bakondi said.
