Parliament

Hungary’s former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány, who is currently the leader of opposition Democratic Coalition, has been hosting refugees for one night each at his home, Hungarian online daily atv.hu reported. 

The online portal contacted the politician after it found video footage of the former prime minister leaving Budapest’s Keleti Railway Station, and he admitted that he had been hosting a number of refugees for the past couple of nights, Hungarian online daily index.hu reported yesterday.

Gyurcsány told atv.hu that he hosted a ten-member Syrian family, and a day after he hosted a six-member Syrian-Kurdish group. He added that the refugees receive dinner in the evening and breakfast in the morning, and while they sleep their clothes are washed. The portal noted that the refugees use sign language to communicate with the politician and his family.
