iWiW founder sues all Hungarian parties
Zsolt Várady, founder of the discontinued Hungarian social networking site iWiW, sued all Hungarian parties that ever set foot in Parliament since the change of regime in Hungary in 1990, Hungarian online daily vs.hu reported yesterday.
The accusation, dated October 10, says that Hungarian parties established a system of taxation where “it is impossible to run a business without becoming a tax avoider and tax cheater”. According to Várady, this situation applies to employers and employees.
Várady maintains that the situation violates the following constitutional rights: the right to fair economic competition, the right to become an entrepreneur, the right to freedom of economic competition and the right to dignified working conditions considering health and safety.
He argues that “parties intentionally put pressure on society in order to make it easy to manipulate and bribe”. It is better for the government if “everyone is guilty as they can easily be cornered this way”, Várady says.
Várady said the lawsuit is part of his campaign to fight for the improvement of taxing morale in Hungary.
