Justice Minister against establishment of EPPO
Speaking about the proposed establishment of the European Public Prosecutor's Office (EPPO), Justice Minister Judit Varga said, "Brussels wants even more power to the detriment of the Member States" in a post on Facebook.
Varga noted that the Hungarian government, acting after a preliminary position taken by lawmakers, had decided not to participate in establishing the EPPO or the cooperation strengthening process and called the issue a "matter of sovereignty.
The document establishing the EPPO does not meet the basic, principled and professional requirements such as national self-determination and full respect of the constitutional structure," she said.
Varga pointed out that Poland, Denmark, Sweden, and Ireland had also decided against joining the EPPO.
