Budapest, November 10 (MTI) – Ildiko Vida, head of the tax office (NAV), will stay in her post, Economy Minister Mihaly Varga told Hungarian public radio on Monday morning.
Protesters Demand Dismissal of Tax Chiefs
Vida has been accused by the US without any evidence, Varga said and added that dismissing her from her office would be “the worst option”. Varga insisted that the entry ban imposed by the United States was a cover for “some political motive”, and repeated the government’s request to US authorities to share their reasons for the ban.
The US authorities should indicate the case in which Vida is allegedly involved and Hungary will start an investigation without delay, the minister said.
On Sunday, protesters in Budapest demanded the removal of NAV leaders associated with recent US charges of corruption.
