Népszava: Gömöri to leave Hungarian Paralympic Committee on Friday

June 15, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-06-15 at 4.39.43 PM Hungarian left-leaning newspaper Népszava reports that Zsolt Gömöri (far right), the Hungarian Paralympic Committee scandal-ridden president, will leave his post on Friday. The newspaper also reports that Fidesz MEP Tamás Deutsch (second from right) may depart too.

The committee’s stakeholders will convene on Friday to decide the fate of Gömöri, who Népszava reports will no longer be president by the end of the meeting.

His departure may happen in one of two ways. Gömöri will either fail to secure a vote of confidence by the organization’s board, or he will submit his letter of resignation before any such vote of confidence takes place.

Shortly after news that  the Hungarian Paralympic Committee had given Gömöri HUF 3 million with which to service his mortgage loan, Deutsch publicly stated that the money had been gifted in a lawful manner. In fact, the board of directors reportedly found such transfers to be unwarranted and illegal.
