PM’s son-in-law’s company investigated by police

History

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s son-in-law’s company Elios Innovatív Zrt. is currently under investigation by the Hungarian National Police (ORFK) for a series of tenders won by the company, news portal index.hu reported earlier this week. 

The husband of Orbán’s eldest daughter István Tiborcz is a 50% stakeholder in Elios, which won four tenders valued at HUF 1.2 billion forints in an allegedly fraudulent manner. These tenders involved, for the most part, upgrading public lighting systems in various regions throughout Hungary. The ORFK’s investigation was launched on suspicion of misconduct in the public procurement tenders won by Elios.
