Juhász organizes anti-corruption walk
Saying that he is still awaiting news on charges against MP Antal Rogán that he personally filed with the police, Péter Juhász, a council member in Budapest’s District 5, is organizing an anti-corruption walk on Wednesday at 6 p.m., departing from Erzsébet tér 4.
Juhász says he filed documents with authorities that detail "organized criminal activity" and adds that Rogán, head of the Fidesz caucus, was involved in that activity.
Juhász claims that property belonging to District 5 was sold to associates of Rogán at a fraction of the market price and that this took place while Rogán was the district mayor. According to Juhász, the deals were not audited or controlled in any way, and he charged that the participants in the deals even avoided value added tax.
Juhász said that he filed detailed documents on these charges with the police and he has yet to hear about any action in the cases.
“There is nothing left but social pressure” Juhász says on his Facebook page regarding the demonstration.
