DK contacting the FBI about Pharaon

The Demokratikus Koalíció (DK) party is contacting Interpol and the FBI about the claim that the Hungarian Prime Minister’s family is doing business with Ghaith Pharaon, who is allegedly on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.

László Varju, the party’s deputy chair, held a press conference on Sunday in Budapest about Pharaon’s high-value real estate dealings with a family member of PM Viktor Orbán, and that he most recently he purchased a piece of property opposite Orbán’s home, according to MTI.

Varju stated that Pharaon had previously done business with Osama bin Laden, and stressed that “since the government is doing business with internationally-known criminals,” DK would do all it could to protect the county. This was why, he said, the party was contacting Interpol, the FBI, and Hungarian authorities.
