Reporter forced to leave HírTV

HírTV reporter Miklós Medgyesi found himself out of a job last Thursday, one day after putting a challenging question to Fidesz MP János Halász.

After Magyar Idők reported – before it was officially announced – that Nikola Gruevski had been granted asylum, Medgyesi asked Halász following Wednesday’s national security committee meeting “if Márta Demeter is attacked for making classified data public, will there be an investigation because Magyar Idők published on its front page the result of Gruevski’s refugee investigation?”

Medgyesi’s position was abolished the following day. He told HVG that he left the streamlined HírTV by mutual agreement but was forbidden by the terms from saying anything more.

HírTV did not respond to HVG’s queries.
