Although Hungary has not joined the European Public Prosecutor’s Office, its leader still praised Hungary in a recent interview, Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga wrote in a Facebook post.

“The praise was unexpected. Although Hungary did not join the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (which was not even mandatory by the way), it responded to all its requests in a timely and accurate manner while it was also the first to sign a cooperation agreement,” Varga wrote. “We support partnerships based on mutual respect on all European platforms!”

The head of the Hungarian Ministry of Justice reacted to the fact that the Prosecutor General Laura Codruța Kövesi, who leads the European Public Prosecutor’s Office, mentioned Hungary as a positive example in her statement, mainly because while Hungary did not join the organization, it has so far responded to all requests from the office in a timely manner.

Kövesi said in an interview on the occasion of the organization’s one-year existence that governments had repeatedly failed to take the work of the office seriously, whether or not they were members.

She cited Slovenia as an example, as the Slovenian government has for a long time failed to appoint its national liaison prosecutors (i.e., investigators in the member states). According to Kövesi, Poland has also repeatedly rejected the agency’s requests for cooperation. .
