Anti-corruption organization K-Monitor filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Affairs on the grounds that the ministry, as an organization performing public functions, did not disclose information about Viktor Orbán’s trip to Rome, despite a public interest request.
As the organization states on its Facebook page, the Hungarian Prime Minister was chosen in Croatia by the army’s Falcon 7X aircraft, Then he took her with a small delegation to Rome At the annual meeting of Catholic legislators.
K-Monitor states that the State Department had to respond to the data request within a maximum of 15 days as required by law, but the department did not respond at all, so the organization applied to the court for redress.
It is also known that the family members of the Prime Minister, his wife and son were also in Rome, so the question arises: did they also arrive on the military plane? Bertalan Havasi answered question 24.hu regarding this:
During official programs, the Prime Minister always travels in accordance with the official regulations provided by the Counter-Terrorism Center. As per current practices, he bears the costs of his family members.
This indicates that members of Viktor Urban’s family traveled with him to Rome.
K-Monitor is looking for an answer to this in court, too. He cited the questions asked on his Facebook page in the lawsuit.
There have already been examples where the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has issued required data on air travel. Independent Member of Parliament Bernadette Zell has asked Foreign Minister Peter Sigarto to take him on unscheduled flights List, which revealed that since 2018, the portfolio manager’s trips have consumed HUF 171 million, although these are costs borne only by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
However, according to Bernadette Zell, Peter Shigarto did not travel during his regular trips Use army machinesSo it is conceivable that in addition to paying off foreign exchange, there were also the costs of flights for foreign affairs.
Critics say senior government officials use the planes purchased for the military as private jets. Suspicions may be reinforced by the latter case, as one of the Defense Ministry’s Dessault Falcon 606 aircraft, which regularly transports the prime minister and members of the government, also turned up in Bordeaux, where Laszlo Calocsay, a winemaker and business, is. Lőrinc Mészáros partner, bought a historical vineyard, Which was sold by its previous owner years ago for six million euros (about 2.2 billion forints).
