The central bureau of investigation of the public prosecutor’s office has questioned Márta Demeter, a lawmaker of green opposition LMP, in relation to charges she abused her office. The prosecutor’s office said in a statement that in September 2018 Demeter accessed information relating to the Hungarian armed forces before posting it on social media, falsely claiming that a close relative of the prime minister had used military aircraft for a private journey. The prosecutor’s office said that Demeter had published classified data. Demeter’s immunity was suspended on July 12 pending the enquiry.
