József Ángyán, the former Hungarian State Secretary in the Ministry of Rural Development, started his own fight against corruption. Ángyán resigned in January and since then he has been raising concern [hu] about the shady relations between the government and some Hungarian ‘oligarchs’ – Lajos Simicska and Zsolt Nyerges [en], who are often referred to as PM Viktor Orbán’s close allies and members of the highly influential business elite.
Mr. Ángyán is now struggling now to draw attention to the inconsistencies in state land lease tenders that show that certain influential people’s companies are having more auspicious positions. But it looks like it’s a sensitive issue, and he has to face retaliation of the powers others also had tried to call into account.
