The auditors of the European Commission reviewed 48 EU tenders last November, and 44 of them failed to meet the requirements. This means that Hungary may be fined for HUF 100-150 billion. The parties involved include Lőrinc Mészáros’ companies and the law office of Fidesz MP István Bajkai.
Jobbik has warned the public many times over the past years that most of the EU funds end up in the hands of a small pro-government circle which significantly overprices the bills amongst circumstances effectively blocking a real competition. Although it is not yet known what anomalies the reviews have found but the people mentioned above are likely to have something to do with the fines.
Through its practice of legalized corruption, the Fidesz government skims the EU monies, taking them away from Hungarian small and medium enterprises, the Hungarian taxpayers.
The clearest evidence of that is that Lőrinc Mészáros could pay the whole sum of this fine on his own. On the other hand, when it comes to paying up, it will undoubtedly be done by taking the money from the Hungarian people’s pockets, stealing it from them once again.
Contrary to the current practices, Jobbik wants a more transparent tender system supporting small and medium enterprises because that is the way to give a long-lasting boost to the Hungarian economy and increase Hungarian living standards.
