Democratic Coalition Party Demands Answers On Govt Officials' Use Of Private Plane, Yacht
The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has written to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán demanding to know how many government members have been flown by private plane to a luxury yacht on the Adriatic.

DK spokesman Balázs Barkóczi cited press reports alleging that the private jet had been parked on an island in proximity to a luxury yacht used by Péter Szijjártó, the foreign minister, and suggested that the prime minister himself was also sailing on the Adriatic.

The opposition party’s spokesman insisted use of the yacht by several other government members, too, had been accepted unlawfully.

“We’ve got the right to know how many billions of public money a corrupt Fidesz politician has to steal to be entitled to such a trip,” he said.
