Corruption, Domestic Violence Accusations In Orban's Government: Hungary Amidst  Major Scandal
JUDIT VARGA

The government of the country faces big problems.

On Tuesday, March 26, Hungarian oppositionist Péter Magyar published a recording with the voice of ex-Minister of Justice Judit Varga, in which the official allegedly confirms the government’s conspiracy to conceal corruption in the country. He handed over the audio file to the Budapest prosecutor's office.

The record states that some government members allegedly used prosecutors to remove evidence from court records to conceal their roles in corrupt business transactions. The АР agency reports this.

However, former Justice Minister Judit Varga denies that corruption was covered up. She wrote on Facebook that she said this at the request of Magyar, her then husband. She accused him of domestic violence and manipulation.

“I said what he wanted to hear so that he could run away quickly. In such a situation, any person can say something that he does not mean in a state of fear,” Varga wrote.

Madyar later denied his ex-wife's accusation. Important to note, the oppositionist became famous after an interview with the popular YouTube channel Partizan, which he gave in February. Then he spoke about the information smear campaigns that the Orbán government uses against opponents. Recently, Péter Magyar announced the creation of his own party, which will compete with the current government.

Judit Varga was the Minister of Justice of Hungary, but she resigned after a scandal involving the pardon of a person who covered up child abuse in a state orphanage. President Katalin Novák also signed an amnesty for this man. She also resigned.
