LMP founder pulls stunt at tax office

Awards

Founder and former member of the LMP party, Gábor Vágó, and a group of activists filled the Hungarian Tax Authority’s (NAV) customer service office on Dób utca in Budapest yesterday to enquire as to whether tax head Ildikó Vida had resigned yet, nol.hu reported.

Vágó’s and his team pulled several numbered tickets before being called to the service desks. Vágó also asked if investigations of individuals would still be carried out while NAV itself was under investigation.

The clerk politely advised him to consult with NAV’s press department for all such enquiries. Vida is one of six Hungarian officials banned from entering the U.S. on allegations of corruption. Economy Minister Mihály Varga said Vida would be allowed to keep her post despite pressure from the public for her resignation.
