A Hungarian member of the European Parliament has sparred with a human
rights campaigner and caused an outcry on Twitter after writing that
pigs’ heads along the border fence erected by Hungary to keep out
migrants would make an effective deterrent.
Under conservative Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, Hungary has taken one of the toughest stances among fellow European Union members against the recent mass influx of migrants and refugees to the bloc, a crisis that has divided the EU.
Last year Hungary erected a razor wire topped fence along its southern border to stop migrants, patrolled by thousands of extra troops. On 2 October, the country will hold a referendum on whether they agree with the EU’s policy of mandatory settlement of migrants without consent of parliament.
The MEP behind the comments was Gyorgy Schopflin, a former BBC employee and London-based professor, who has been an MEP for Orbán’s conservative Fidesz party since 2004.
