He asked the European authorities to investigate how much money designated for health-care developments has “disappeared into Fidesz pockets”. Varjú, who sits in parliament as an independent, asked government office chief János Lázár and development minister Miklós Seszták why they had “dealt with only one bidder” per tender and had failed to carry out a “procurement by open competition”.
He asked the ministers to publish the list showing which companies signed contracts with which hospitals. He said the case goes beyond the suspicion of cartel activity and the authorities should also investigate an allegation of corruption.
