The government has relieved Gyula Budai, the commissioner in charge of holding public servants to account and investigating graft, of his post as of August 31.
The decree was published in the government’s official gazette on July 27.
Budai, a lawmaker of ruling Fidesz, was appointed to serve in the post in November, 2010, replacing Ferenc Papcsak who became mayor of one of the capital’s districts.
The government spokesman’s office told MTI in a statement on Thursday that Budai handled 1,434 reports of alleged misconduct under the previous government cycle. Investigations or legal proceedings were closed in 107 of these cases and are still under way in another 50.
Budai last October indicated that his assignment would last for another year.
