International communications undersecretary Ferenc Kumin has dismissed as “tasteless” an animated film recently shown on children’s programming on German state-run television networks ARD and ZDF.
The cartoon, entitled “Red Card for Hungary”, explains to children that Hungary has violated EU regulations too many times and could therefore be punished by being deprived of EU subsidies.
Kumin said the content is full of lies and could stir up anti-Hungarian sentiment.
The cabinet may protest in the firmest way, even by taking legal action, he warned.
The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the government had repeatedly denied claims that the fourth amendment reduces the powers of the Constitutional Court.
