Budapest, February 4 (MTI) – The opposition Jobbik party has proposed setting up a parliamentary committee to investigate findings by the European Union’s anti-fraud office (OLAF) concerning alleged corruption in the construction of Budapest’s fourth metro line.

Gábor Staudt, Jobbik’s deputy group leader, told a press conference on Saturday that the committee should also find answers to the question “why perpetrators in such corruption cases are never held to account”.

Staudt insisted that ruling Fidesz, when it won power in 2010, had pledged that corrupt politicians would be tried, but it never happened. He also suggested that the prosecutor’s office “has performance problems” when it comes to investigating corruption.
