Sixth District property trial revived

Prosecutors have pressed charges against 14 former local councillors and two former notaries over property deals in the Sixth District in 2003-05.

It said a Kúria ruling in 2019 regarding the sale of properties at Andrássy út 3 and 47 stated that those local councillors who authorise the mayor to sell district assets without tendering and below market value are guilty of misuse of funds.

The Kúria ruling has made it possible for a partial review of rulings that had earlier terminated the investigation.

Prosecutors proposed in the indictment that the court unite this case with a criminal case launched at Pest Central District Court over the attempted sale of a property at Jókai utca 10.
