Charges pressed against Fidesz mayor

Prosecutors have pressed charges against József Mondok, Fidesz mayor of Izsák, because of budget fraud and other crimes.

Mondok had used a hunting lodge built from EU funds for his private purposes.

After his family business was granted the Ft 35 million to build the lodge in 2014-15 Mondok and his wife took up residence in the completed building.

Prosecutors noted that the mayor of the village repaid the Ft 35 million cost of construction to the state budget, in July, one month after the Prime Minister’s Office ordered him to do so.
