State asset manager finds nothing suspicious with Volán-Daimler deal

Hungary's National Asset Management Company (MNV) said it found no suspicious circumstances suggesting graft or bribery in an investigation of a public procurement by state-owned bus company Volánbusz from German vehicle maker Daimler in 2005.

The government mandated the investigation in March, after Daimler was charged by the US Justice Department of paying bribes to officials in at least 22 countries to win lucrative contracts. In the case it was alleged Daimler paid more than €300,000 to Hungarian government officials related to the Volánbusz contract. (MTI – Econews)
