Budapest - Hungarian prosecutors have rejected a complaint from a Jewish congregation against a lawmaker who said Jews could represent a national security risk.

Rabbi Slomo Koves and Daniel Bodnar of Hungary’s Orthodox Chabad-Lubavitch community had filed a complaint against Marton Gyongyosi for incitement to hatred after the deputy of the far-right Jobbik party said in Parliament on Nov. 26 that it was “time to assess ... how many people of Jewish origin there are here, and especially in the Hungarian Parliament and the Hungarian government, who represent a certain national security risk for Hungary.”

The Central Investigative Chief Prosecutor’s Office said Wednesday that Gyongyosi’s remarks could not be classified as inciting to hatred.
