November 13th Hearing: Another Visit to the Testimony from Regőczi

November 13th Hearing: Another Visit to the Testimony from Regőczi

On Tuesday, November 13th, 2012 the trial of the Budapest Public Transport Company (BKV) continued in the city of Kecskemét, Hungary.  Miklós Hagyó, the primary defendant amongst the 15 accused, gave his thoughts on the testimony of Miklós Regőczi, BKV’s former deputy CEO of sales and communication.
Regőczi, who is accused of acting in a criminal organization which was allegedly led by Hagyó, stated in his testimony that the charges have been trumped up and the evidence provided to support the charges against Miklós Hagyó was falsely stated under controversial interrogations.  Regőczi also defended the contracts signed with companies such as Pont Ez Ltd. and WELL Advertising and PR Agency Ltd. noting that other publicly owned companies had executed much larger PR and marketing contracts, but those companies have never been scrutinized. 
According to the indictment, these companies were contracted to “improve the public image” of the public transport company, but the prosecution asserts that since BKV hold a monopoly in the public transport sector there was no need for such contracts and prodigal business. 
Regőczi also renounced previously made claims that Miklós Hagyó, the deputy mayor of Budapest and political supervisor of BKV from 2006 to 2010, never ordered him to affect contracts. 
Hagyó, in accordance with him being charged of running BKV as a criminal organization, is accused of forcing contracts with companies that were not operating in BKV’s best interest, but instead were politically or personally profitable for him.
The former deputy mayor recalled during the hearing on November 13th that many other individuals were ordering the creation of contracts, but not him.  He listed György Tóthfalusi, a former SZDSZ representative, along with Ferenc Olti and Gábor Dancs.  “Neither me nor my colleagues had no right to give orders to the administration,” repeated Hagyó.
He also noted that even though these men oversaw the business between BKV and other contractors, none of them are suspects nor have they been witnesses during the trial.  “Though I’m of the persuasion that my political colleagues acted legally, their names appeared in the records as people who gave orders to the upper management of BKV, yet there is no investigation into their actions,” asserted the former deputy mayor.
