DK Asks Europe’s Antifraud Office To Probe Hungary’s NAV
Opposition Democratic Coalition MEPs have asked the European anti-fraud office (OLAF) to launch a probe into the activities of Hungary’s national tax office (NAV). DK spokesman Zsolt Gréczy said that Csaba Molnár and Péter Niedermüller had addressed a letter to Vera Jourova, European commissioner for justice, and the head of OLAF in connection with corruption, suspicion of a cover-up of VAT fraud and the case of the tax office’s chief Ildikó Vida, who has been banned from entering the United States.

A party spokesperson said that these matters could also be damaging for the EU.

Given that there is “no organisation which is independent of the government” for pursuing a credible investigation, DK is therefore turning to OLAF in the hope it will investigate the NAV in order to clarify that EU money has not got caught up in government corruption, the spokesperson said in a statement.
