Hungarian Law Restricts Scrutiny Of Wealth Accumulation
Changes approved by Parliament last week mean that investigations into suspicious accumulation of wealth by cabinet members and their families will not be possible without their consent from January, Together party vice-president Péter Juhász highlighted at a press briefing on Sunday. He said Together is initiating investigations this month into accumulation of wealth by all cabinet members, before the new legislation enters into force.

“We are keen to find out when Antal Rogán will allow us to estimate from where he obtained the money to buy a nearly 300m² property in Pasa park, where home prices are above Ft 1 million per square metre, and when Péter Szijjártó will take us to his tailor where he bought a jacket for Ft 1 million,” Juhász said.

He added that Together will examine every delicate matter meticulously along with all evidence and will use it “to unseat this corrupt, depraved gang of thieves”.
