KEHI Raids Ökotárs Foundation Offices In Budapest
Agents from the government audit office KEHI appeared yesterday at the offices of the Ökotárs Foundation, which is in charge of disbursing funds from the Norway Grant programme, as well as two recipient organisations and took documents.

Ökotárs director Veronika Móra told Index that her office handed over parts of documents to which the government has already had access, and is to provide other documents by Friday.

This not yet a problem, she noted, as KEHI did not ask for sensitive data.

Ökotárs will withhold some requested documents, said Móra, as they would give the government access to sensitive data which they could use in other cases, such as information on with whom human rights and gay groups are co-operating.

KEHI inspectors also sought documents from the Autonómia Foundation and DemNet, asking for their internal correspondence and the names of those on awarding committees.
