November 15th Hearing: Regőczi’s Testimony is Still Hotly Discussed

November 15th Hearing: Regőczi’s Testimony is Still Hotly Discussed

During the hearing of the Budapest Public Transport Company (BKV) on Thursday, November 15th, 2012 in Kecscemét, Hungary the public transportation company reviewed their civil law claims.  The representative from BKV, after reading their accumulated financial damages according to the formal indictment, announced that the 15 defendants will be responsible for the nearly 1.8 billion forint reimbursement (just less than 8.2 million USD at the time of writing [ATW]).  
Miklós Hagyó, the primary defendant who as deputy mayor of Budapest between 2006 and 2010 maintained political oversight of the public company, has been charged with damages totaling 168 million forint (almost $765,000.00 ATW).  Hagyó, who is facing charges of misappropriation of public funds, bribery, and managing a criminal organization, continued to rebut the accusations against him, especially those from the interrogation of the fifth defendant, Miklós Regőczi.
Hagyó asserted that according to the evidence accrued and the progression of the trial he is not certain where the basis of the indictment against him and other defendants is founded.  Hagyó also noted the amount of potential witnesses who have not been called to testify in the case.
Miklós Regőczi held various high level positions in the communications and sales departments of BKV from 2007 onward.  During 2010 interrogations, Regőczi verbally incriminated other defendants such as Miklós Hagyó.  In the former deputy CEO’s most recent testimony, however, stated that his incriminations were falsely made under duress from the investigators.  According to Regőczi, along with five other defendants, the interrogators coerced him to incriminate Miklós Hagyó and others with promises of easier pretrial treatment.
