“If this continues to be the case, Hungary will lose out,” he said. During his talks with Gunther Oettinger, the Digital Commissioner, Gyurcsány repeated his concern that the Hungarian government was not doing enough to take part in removing the obstacles to creating a unified European digital market.
Gyurcsány met Giovanni Kessler, the head of the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), German and Greek MEPs, and addressed a meeting of the Social Democratic European Parliamentary Group.
He dismissed accusations by Ildikó Pelcz Gáll, Fidesz MEP and Vice President of the European Parliament, who said Gyurcsány “regularly meets commissioners in Brussels to lobby for his own economic interests and to finance his party from EU monies”.
Gyurcsány said the subject of an EU tender won by his company Altus did not come up at any of his meetings in Brussels.
He added that Pelcz Gáll’s remarks were tantamount to corruption allegations against the commissioners he had met, who were, incidentally, all members of the European People’s Party, the same party group Fidesz belongs to.
