Hungary expects further legal battles after the "outrageous" and "irresponsible" ruling of the European Court of Justice.

“The position of the Hungarian government is that the ruling issued by the European Court of Justice in the migrant quota case is outrageous and irresponsible”, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó told a press conference. “The real battle is only just beginning, and Hungary will be making use of all opportunities for legal redress to ensure that nobody can be relocated to Hungary against the wishes of the Hungarian people”, he said.

 The Minister said that in his opinion the European Court of Justice has made a political ruling: “politics has raped European law”.

 At the press conference Minister of Justice László Trócsányi also said that Hungary can expect further legal battles, adding that it is regrettable that the Court ignored Hungary’s legally sound arguments and decided that the fundamental precepts of EU law could be ignored.
