Former president to sue Semmelweis University
Ex-president Pál Schmitt is going to file a lawsuit against the Semmelweis University, the Presidential Office said in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.
Schmitt decided on taking legal steps after he was stripped of his doctorate title by the academic senate of the university on March 29 because of his plagiarism scandal.
"The former president, after receiving the decision of the senate of the Semmelweis University, which contains factual, legal and procedural mistakes, will make the necessary legal actions with the assistance of an assigned law office," the statement reads.
Schmitt commented the senate’s decision when returning from South-Korea stating that he was deeply offended but was not considering any legal actions.
