Jobbik to request OLAF reports on cases closed by Hungary
Budapest (MTI) – Opposition Jobbik party will request reports from Europe’s anti-fraud office (OLAF) on six cases that had earlier been closed by Hungarian authorities without any charges being filed, the party’s deputy group leader said on Sunday.
Gábor Staudt told a press conference that in response to a question submitted earlier to the chief public prosecutor by Jobbik, Peter Polt had cited six reports compiled by OLAF between 2012 and 2016 about cases that had already been investigated by Hungarian authorities. Staudt said the chief prosecutor had not elaborated on the cases the reports concerned.
Staudt added that under EU law, OLAF had a duty to release the reports, given that no criminal proceedings had been launched in any of the cases.
Jobbik intends to release the reports to the public, he added.
