Another Win for Miklós

It seems that Miklós Hagyó has won another small battle, essentially making progress in ending the war that has become the “Hagyó Case.”
One of the formal charges against Miklós is misappropriation of public money when he allegedly ordered the upper-management of the Budapest Public Transport Company (BKV) to execute a series of “unnecessary” contracts between and third-party service providers.
After Zsolt Balogh publicly incriminated Miklós in his statements to, among others, HírTv, the Hungarian Court of Auditors created an investigation authority to analyze the executed contracts of BKV while Miklós oversaw the company within his Deputy Mayoral capacities.
According to Zsolt Balogh and the Court of Auditors, Miklós created the contracts under the guise of BKV improvement, in reality to benefit his personal and professional associates who were not already employed by the state. Therefore, the contract recipients were not acting with capable qualifications.
It was determined, however, after a thorough investigation that Miklós had committed no crime in purported accusations. Furthermore, the investigating committee learned that the contract recipients, a L. Otto and one M. József, were, indeed already employed by the state of Hungary. The former was an agent of the communication and sport sectors while the latter acted on part of the public property management sector, and even though, representatives from more appropriate departments would have been normal recipients, no breach of law occurred.
So, if everyone had legally acted within their assigned capacities, why was there a formal investigation in the first place?
In a statement issued by a spokesman for the Court of Auditors’ investigation committee, the formal process was necessary because they thought that an abuse of power had occurred by the part Miklós Hagyó and his associates. Moreover, improper contract creation and management has, historically, occurred. Although, the court admits, Miklós was not employed by the state when the fraudulent contracts were exercised.
