Court orders NAV to make public hastily prepared exculpatory report

October 30, 2014


Politics Can Be Different (LMP) has won a lawsuit against the National Tax and Duty Authority (NAV) on appeal according to a statement issued by the party on Thursday. The court has ordered NAV release to the public a report supposedly prepared over the course of a weekend in response to former tax inspector turn whistle blower András Horváth’s claim that his employer turned a blind eye to tax fraud amounting to hundreds of billions of forints primarily in the form of unpaid or unlawfully reclaimed value added tax.

The hastily prepared report concluded that there was no basis whatsoever for Horváth’s allegations.
