Opposition members of the Committee on Defense and Law Enforcement wrote an open letter to Minister of Defense Tibor Benkő regarding the military reconnaissance drone that flew over Hungary in early March and later crash-landed in Zagreb.

Ágnes Vadai, Tamás Harangozó, and László Lukács addressed their questions to the Defense Minister, as committee Chair Lajos Kósa “has still not convened the committee after he canceled a planned meeting less than 24 hours before it was supposed to start, nor has he answered our questions about the downed drone.”

“We are only asking you for as much time as the military reconnaissance drone spent in Hungarian airspace,” they write. During this 40 minutes, they would like Minister Benkő to answer the following questions:

  • Is it true that they were not able to identify the military drone that spent 40 minutes in Hungarian airspace?
  • What happened with the promised investigation into the “drone case?”
