Katalin Novák, a close Orbán ally and fomer minister of family affairs, pardoned a convicted pedophile’s accomplice who helped cover up his boss’ sexual abuse of children at an orphanage. This pardon was kept secret for almost a year but it was eventually revealed a week ago, creating a huge scandal. Orbán and Fidesz party lieutenants as well as pundits turned against Novák, who couldn’t explain her decision. Government sources also tell me that Judit Varga, former minister of justice who also signed off on the controversial pardoning, will also step down of all her political offices, including her candidacy for the European Parliament. 🧵Read my previous tweets on the whole story as it unfolded during last week.👇

RT by @AnitaKomuves: ‼️Pedophilia cover-up scandal hits Hungary, and the opposition is calling for the resignation of President @KatalinNovak_HU. This comes after revelations that she pardoned a pedophile’s accomplice who helped cover up his boss’ sexual abuse of children at an orphanage. In April 2023, Novák pardoned the deputy director of the orphanage in the town of Bicske. The deputy director was found guilty for pressuring sexually abused children to withdraw their testimonies against his former boss, the director of the orphanage, now a convicted pedophile. However, Novák kept details of most of her pardonings in secret - meaning she didn’t reveal for whom and in what cases she issued presidential pardons. It was only uncovered in Hungarian media a couple of days ago that Novák, a former Orbán cabinet member in charge of family policies and a self-declared champion of ultra-conservative values, set free a man who tried to cover up long years or sexual abuse against children. Last year, when the pardoning happened, Novák only made public her unusual reason for issuing pardons in multiple undisclosed cases: the Pope’s visit to Hungary and “forgiveness”. In retrospect, it makes the whole scandal even worse that Novák actually used the visit of the head of the Catholic Church as pretext for setting free someone who had covered up pedophilia. Official figures already show that Novák tends to use her pardoning powers more frequently than her predecessors. Previosuly, her most controversial decision was to pardon convicted and trialed leaders and members of the neo-Nazi linked ‘Hunnia group’, a violent Hungarian far-right terrorist organization with deeply racist and antisemitic ideology which carried out firebombings, physical attacks, and planned political assassinations in the 2000s.
