Parbeszed to turn to ombudsman over national parks

The opposition Parbeszed party is turning to the ombudsman over reports of plans to layoffs at national parks, which would harm the acquired level of protection, the party said on Sunday.

During immediate questions and answers in parliament last week, party co-leader Rebeka Szabo asked the government to comment on reports of plans to lay off 135 employees of Hungarian national parks. She told a press conference on Sunday that the state secretary of the agriculture ministry “did not give an unequivocal answer… whether a non-public government decree had instructed” national park directorates to lay off employees, she said.

Szabo said she was going to request data of public interest on the issue from the ministry.
