Index – Interior – Complaint in the Lánchíd scandal: proceedings are initiated due to corruption surrounding the renovation

Parliament member Gyula Budai announced it on his Facebook page, and filed a complaint on Tuesday because it arose the suspicion of official bribery in the renovation of the Chain Bridge:

I filed a complaint yesterday, as suspicions of official bribery arose in connection with the renovation of the Chain Bridge.

According to the Fidesz representative, the National Tax and Customs Administration has been investigating lawyer Vig Mór and his associates since November 2023 for crimes of budget fraud.

Mór Vig may have received a transfer in the amount of billions from A-Híd, which is carrying out the renovation of the Chain Bridge, after which he transferred it to a private account and his lawyer’s escrow account and took HUF 900 million from it in cash – concluded Gyula Budai, who underlined:

The Kehi investigation published a few days ago found that A-híd, which was renovating the Chain Bridge, transferred HUF 1.5 billion to Vig Mór’s company in several installments.

The first reference was made in November 2020, and the last in January 2022. The politician then pointed out that he had received a letter in the past few days, in which it was written that Mór Vig went to the office of a security company located in the Mammut shopping center to settle accounts.

The security company is in contact with the renovation company A-Híd Zrt. According to the letter writer, significant sums of money went to the capital from the bridge money. According to Gyula Budai, these all raise the suspicion of the crime of official bribery. So he filed a complaint with the National Investigation Agency.

Amazing sums were in circulation

As we wrote before, an amount of approximately HUF 1.4 billion may have gone from the contractor of the Chain Bridge, A-HÍD Zrt., to the company of the suspect in the invoice fraud case. atv.hu previously learned that, according to the suspicion, approximately HUF 900 million of the received money could typically be transferred on the day of its receipt to the private and lawyer’s escrow accounts linked to the lawyer Vig Mór, who was detained at the beginning of December, and then within a short time they could withdraw the money in cash money.

At A-Híd Zrt., a major player in the Hungarian construction industry, which also carried out the renovation of the Chain Bridge searched the house the investigating authority at the end of last year. Brenner Koloman, the mayoral candidate of Jobbik – Conservatives, simultaneously initiated the establishment of an investigation committee in connection with the renovation of the Chain Bridge. Brenner initiated the establishment of the investigation committee after NAV conducted a house search at A-HÍD Építő Zrt., which is renovating the Chain Bridge.

atv.hu writes on the basis of the investigative document that reached their editorial office that the NAV is investigating a case in which

ONE OF THE CONCERNS IS A-HÍD ZRT., AND THE OTHER IS LAWYER VIG MÓR, WHO WAS RECENTLY DETENTED ON SUSPICION OF OPERATING AN ACCOUNT LAG, AS WELL AS ONE OF HIS INTERESTS, SUNSTRIKE HUNGARY KFT.

Mór Vig was arrested at the beginning of December on well-founded suspicions of a particularly large amount of budget fraud. According to the newspaper, NAV’s investigation examines, among other things, that from the account of A-HÍD Zrt. November 2020 and July 2022

WAS HUNT 1.4 BILLION TRANSFERRED BETWEEN SUNSTRIKE HUNGARY KFT. INTO HIS ACCOUNT OR FROM KFT. THEREFORE DID THEY TRANSFER HUF 900 MILLION TO VIG MÓR’S PRIVATE ACCOUNT AND TO HIS LAWYER ESCROW ACCOUNT.

The paper previously learned that, according to the suspicion, the transfers to the accounts linked to Vig Mór typically took place on the same days as the days on which the funds from A-HÍD Zrt. arrived at Sunstrike Kft., and the amounts were transferred within a short time was withdrawn from the account in cash. THE according to previous calculations the renovation of the Chain Bridge ended up costing HUF five billion more and was completed with less technical content.
