LMP: Paks upgrade to profit Fidesz-linked businesses
Budapest, March 23 (MTI) – The planned upgrade of the Paks nuclear plant will “only profit the government and companies close to the ruling Fidesz party”, the co-leader of the opposition LMP party told a press conference on Thursday.
Ákos Hadházy said a company “with business ties to Viktor Orbán’s son-in-law” was “already past the gates of the nuclear plant”.
Further, the IT headquarters of the new plant is to be placed in a building that has changed hands multiple times to profit circles connected to the Fidesz mayor of Szekszárd, István Horváth, Hadházy said.
Although none of these actions are illegal, the process is rigged so that well-connected players get undue advantage, Hadházy said.
