LMP seeks access to state company contracts with Microsoft

Miklós Halász-Szabó 2018.09.07.

The opposition LMP party wants copies of contracts that 34 Hungarian state companies concluded on purchasing Microsoft software, a party lawmaker said on Friday, citing concerns that the deals may have been tainted by corruption.

Speaking at a press conference, Gábor Vágó said it was public knowledge that the state companies in question had contracted intermediaries to purchase Microsoft software, and the go-betweens had made “hefty profits on the back of the Hungarian taxpayer”.
