PM Orbán’s Travel Costs

FOI case

Defendandt: Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade
At stake: The ministry has not responded at all to our FOI request asking about the costs of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s and his entourage's official conference visit to Rome in the summer of 2021.


Ministry of Finance’s Project Funds

FOI case

Defendant: Ministry of Finance
At stake
: K-Monitor filed a FOI request to get the contracts concluded by the Ministry of Finance with a project company named PM-TÉR6 Ltd. By these contracts the Ministry granted funds for a building reconstruction that are worth more than HUF 86 billion. The Ministry invoking COVID law extended the deadline for response twice, but in the end, it did not send us the contracts.
The first instance court ordered the Ministry to disclose the data, as the ministry could not justify its rejection. The judgment is not final.


National Order of Judicial Officers’ Contracts

FOI case

Defendant: National Order of Judicial Officers (NOJO)
At stake: Following high profile corruption cases in the justice system, we filed a FOI request for a list of the NOJO's contracts of HUF 5 million or more that were concluded in the last five years for public duties. The NOJO first extended the deadline to reply and then informed us that it did not have a list of its contracts at all.
