Lies Surrounding Fidesz Ventilator Deals Confuse Secretaries of State, Too
It seems that at the Foreign Ministry they no longer know what they lied about and when exactly, as they give conflicting answers to questions about the procurement of ventilators.

Back in August, Secretary of State Péter Sztáray explained the extremely high unit price of ventilators with the number of devices ordered, claiming that the volume had also raised the unit price.

In contrast, Secretary of State Levente Magyar stated in January that the unit price was not high.

Besides the contradiction, there is another problem. Even in the midst of the “incredible competition,” the State Healthcare Supply Centre managed to purchase ventilators of reputable manufacturers from companies with a professional past at a price similar to earlier prices, whereas the ministry bought from unknown, newly formed companies at significantly higher prices.

It would be great if one of the secretaries of state, rather than fabricating up more and more lies, explained how they had managed to pull off this brilliant deal that cost billions.

Until the Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides meaningful answers to the questions, they only confirm the suspicion that Fidesz has made money even from the epidemic situation for the entrepreneurs close to it. It is completely unacceptable for anyone to profit by citing the protection of people’s lives! Corruption through healthcare devices and medical safety gear is a serious crime that has downright been declared tantamount to “murder” by the Director-General of the World Health Organization.
