“Corruption Plaque” Unveiled
A commemorative corruption plaque was unveiled acknowledging cabinet office minister Antal Rogán on Aulich utca 3 yesterday afternoon. The plaque disappeared within a half an hour of the ceremony.

Some 250-300 demonstrators and 13 counter-demonstrators, who whistled and blew horns during the event, converged.

The plaque carried the words: “It was in this building that Antal Rogán and his associates stole money from Hungarians during the tenure of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. We shall always remember this.”

Speeches were made by Together politicians Péter Juhász and Viktor Szigetvári, Dialogue co-president Gergely Karácsony, LMP co-president Ákos Hadházi and one-time Népszabadság journalist Miklós Hargitai.
