OCCRP: Orbán second on corruption list
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was chosen the second most corrupt politician of 2014 according to an analysis of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). The “winner” is Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, while the third person on the list is Montenegro’s Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic.
In 2013 the whole Romanian Parliament was chosen to be the first, while in 2012 the winner was Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Alijev, who is often mentioned in the news as a “dictator” and recently has been strengthening “strategic partnership” ties with Hungary.
Founded in 2006, the OCCRP is a consortium of investigative centers, media and journalists operating in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia and Central America. OCCRP says it is the only full-time investigative reporting organization that specializes in organized crime and corruption
