Audit Office Suspends Opposition DK Funding

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.05.21.

The Hungarian Audit Office (ÁSZ) on Thursday suspended budgetary funding for the opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) party, citing irregularities uncovered during its review of the party’s finances in 2017-2018.

DK will not receive state funding until it has rectified its finances and proved that they are now in line with regulations, ÁSZ said.

DK: Audit Office ‘Threatens’ to Strip Party of Funding

ÁSZ Secretary-General Magdolna Holman told an online press conference on Thursday that DK’s financial statements do not represent in a “real and credible” manner the party’s income and expenses, she said.

The false statements have also misled the party’s membership, Holman said.
