The Ministry of the Interior (pictured) will not be conducting an investigation into the leaked speech by House Speaker László Kövér to senior intelligence officials at the Office for the Protection of the Constitution last year, Azonnali has learned.

The news site asked several governmental bodies whether it would be justified to investigate the circumstances in which Kövér was recorded without his knowledge, and whether the secret recording posed any serious national security risks.

Thus far they have only received a response from the Interior Ministry, which answered that they “do not consider it necessary to conduct an investigation.”

However, János Stummer, Chairman of the National Security Committee in Parliament, intends to investigate the matter through his official role.

The Jobbik MP told Azonnali that “at the next committee hearing on December 9, we will ask both [Interior Minister] Sándor Pintér and the head of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution whether an investigation is underway, and if not, if they plan on having one.”
