The infringement procedure the European Commission launched yesterday against Hungary’s recently adopted asylum law is “revenge” for Hungary taking the refugee quota system to the European Court, Cabinet Chief János Lázár said yesterday at his regular press conference, according to Hungarian online daily origo.hu.

Hungary’s asylum regulations are in line with the constitutional and human rights requirements of the country, Lázár reportedly said. Lázár added that the government will address the EC’s concerns announced yesterday; the government is ready to negotiate with the Brussels-based commission and Hungary is also ready to turn to the court, origo.hu reported.
