Government official: there is no person named Ghaith Pharaon in Hungary

Károly Kontrát, Parliamentary State Secretary for the Interior Ministry, claims in an article in Magyar Idők that there is no one named Ghaith Pharaon living in Hungary, and that he has not bought real estate here.

“If there is a Ghaith Pharaon who is the same person that is on the American authorities’ most wanted list and this person steps on Hungarian soil, we will catch him immediately,” Kontrát said.

As previously reported, a company linked to Saudi businessman Ghaith Pharoan, who is wanted in the United States, recently bought a piece of property next to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s residence. (via HVG)
