Charges Laid Over Sale Of Posta HQ In Budapest
Budapest Police propose that prosecutors press charges against six people, including former vice president Pál Szabó, in the matter of the sale of the Magyar Posta headquarters in Buda five years ago. The sale and the rent contract for a new office have allegedly cost the state Ft 9 billion.

Police said the suspects misled the state asset manager in 2007 and 2008 with unrealistic figures, inducing the asset manager to opt for the most expensive solution, namely the sale of the headquarters and renting new office buildings.
