Jobbik party’s participation in next year’s parliamentary election has become “doubtful”, group leader János Volner told a press conference on Wednesday.
Earlier in the day, the State Audit Office (ASZ) accused the party of accepting over 330 million forints (over EUR 1m) in illegal financing.
The party has accepted no questionable funding from organisations or private individuals, Volner said.
Volner said that in light of the charge the party was expecting a fine of 660 million forints, which would deplete the party’s campaign budget.
“What happened today equals to the first steps of banning and clearing away Jobbik,” the group leader said.
The Audit Office, “which is now headed by a former Fidesz lawmaker”, has barred Jobbik from submitting the requested data ahead of the deadline, then accused the party of keeping it secret, Volner insisted. The body refused to receive the documents on paper afterwards, and made its conclusions without knowledge of them and established the total “randomly”, he said.
