Momentum: Suspected graft cases increase steadily since 2010
“Monies between 500 billion and 1,000 billion forints (EUR 1.3m-2.7m) disappear in Hungary due to graft each year,” Ferenc Gelencser, who is also deputy mayor of the city’s 1st district, told a press conference streamed on Facebook.
“The European Union will respond most probably by withholding EU funding from Hungary because of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán,” he said.
“Because of [ruling] Fidesz and Viktor Orbán’s greed, we are going to lose out on funding we could spend on schools, jobs, hospitals and improving our housing environment,” Gelencser said.
Marton Tompos, Momentum’s spokesman, said that a corruption tracing app had been launched which helps identify if “a Fidesz politician is implicated in any suspected graft case”.
