Prosecutors target Jobbik-MIÉP 2006 election vehicle

The Prosecutor’s Office has launched an investigation into a dormant political grouping that right-wing parties MIÉP and Jobbik used to contest the 2006 general elections, writes fn.hu, based on a television report.

The electoral alliance, called MIÉP-Jobbik a Harmadik Út, which still exists legally, had been reported by the State Audit Office (ÁSZ) for serious violations of accounting rules. Prosecutors suspect that the body may have misused over Ft 70 million in state support.

István Csurka and Dávid Kovács, co-chairmen of the party, may be questioned as suspects in the case.

Jobbik spokesman Előd Novák reacted to the report by saying that “István Csurka is widely known to be a hustler” and that Kovács has not been member of Jobbik for years.

Speaking on behalf of MIÉP, Gizella Papolczy said the party did not know about the investigation, as they had not received any documents about it from the Prosecutor’s Office.

    And that is why Jobbik chose to work with him in the 2006 Elections?
    That type of arguments just comes back and bite.
    So these are the ‘new and clean politicians’, not so much differs obviously.

    “Prosecutors suspect that the body may have misused over Ft 70 in state support.”
    I suspect there may be a typo in the number. Unless they were buying an unauthorised pencil or something.

    @Aldamir: Well, they said “over” so it could be anything. Just kidding – typo fixed.
