The opposition Socialists have called for a repeated investigation into issues around state land sales at Hortobágy, in eastern Hungary, the party’s deputy leader said on Wednesday.

The Government Control Office (KEHI) had conducted a probe into lease contracts three years ago which had established irregularities in data in bids submitted to buy state-owned plots and figures in official registers, Zoltán Gőgös told a press conference.

He said that in one instance “a rather strange land swap deal” had taken place in the village of Egyek, in eastern Hungary, in which a local deputy had obtained ownership of a municipally-owned plot.

 

There are currently 151,250 farmers in Hungary, but only 30,000 of them had purchased state land, Gőgös said.

The agricultural policy of the ruling Fidesz party will lead to “nowhere”, it will only destroy the countryside, he said.
