The Budapest Beacon interviewed Benedek Javor, a parliamentary MP for Parbeszed Magyarorszagert (PM), to find out what’s going on with Hungary’s Green Authority. We discuss controversies surrounding the head of National Inspectorate for Environment, Nature and Water, “Dr.” Katalin Szatmari.
- Organizational weaknesses in the Green Authority: the agency hasn’t published a meaningful document since 2010.
- The consistently inconsistent credentials of Szatmari: is she qualified for the job? Benedek Javor doesn’t think so.
- Should someone with an honorary doctorate from a fake university be able to use the “Dr” prefix?
- Is Hungary at a higher risk for environmental catastrophe since the Red Sludge disaster of 2010?
