Public prosecutor Péter Polt has been uninterested in investigating “scandalous corruption cases involving oligarchs” and has instead provided a cover for suspected wrongdoing, the opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has said. DK has complained to Polt’s office about suspected Holocaust denial by Minister of Human Resources Zoltán Balog and the central bank’s purchase of Eiffel Palace, an office centre, at an “unjustifiably extortionate price”. DK MP Szabolcs Kerék-Bárczy told a press conference in front of the prosecutor’s office in Budapest that the office has refused to investigate. The party also submitted a complaint about the Századvég Foundation after its former manager, Tamás Mellár, called it a money-laundering operation, and reported alleged mismanagement and fraud over the sale of properties in central Budapest. The first two complaints were rejected out of hand and the third was “kicked into the long grass”, Kerék-Bárczy said. He noted other complaints rejected by the office, including the asset declaration of the central bank governor and one against Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for “allegedly abusing insider information”.
