HHRF ALERT: Romanian President Vilifies Hungarian Minority

On April 29, President Klaus Iohannis resorted to incitement against the country’s Hungarian minority – the first serious attack of this nature from a Romanian head of state since the fall of communism three decades ago. In a two-minute video denunciation, Iohannis falsely accused the 1.5 million-strong Hungarian community - and DAHR, a parliamentary party representing it - of conspiring with the opposition Romanian Social Democrat Party (PSD) and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in a secessionist plot to destroy Romania’s territorial integrity.
