Juhász quits District 5 council committees over 'theft'
Péter Juhász resigned from his committee positions on the council of the Fifth District, saying that he did not want to be associated with the “theft” and mishandling of the district's property that he outlines in a document he presented to District 5 Mayor Péter Szentgyörgyvölgyi, online daily atv.hu reported today.
Juhász (pictured) gave the incriminating documents to index.hu, and they posted the document online here.
Yesterday, Juhász said in an ATV broadcast that, on the basis of these documents, "Szentgyörgyvölgyi and the whole Fidesz mafia will resign from the leadership of District 5".
Juhász has alleged that, when MP Antal Rogán was mayor of District 5, district property was illegally sold to associates of Rogán at very low prices. The documentation that he handed to Szentgyörgyvölgyi today, and which is posted online, does not include names, but it does list documentation that contains names of people involved in the alleged real estate deals.
Rogán yesterday denied any wrongdoing, and said that every property deal handled by District 5 officials was legal, according to index.hu.
Szentgyörgyvölgyi reportedly told atv.hu that he accepted the committee resignation, and added that Juhász had not contributed much to the committee’s work.
