Acting President: 'Investigative journalists are terrorists with a pen’
Mr. Laszlo Köver, acting President of Hungary gave a TV interview in which he called the investigative journalists revealing the plagiarism of Pal Schmitt ‘quirky nobodies, terrorists with pens’.
Laszlo Köver has been seen as one of PM Viktor Orban’s closest confidants and allies for over two decades, and one of the most powerful figures in Fidesz. He served in several ministerial positions earlier including that supervising the Intelligence Agencies. He has been Speaker of Parliament since 2010, and therefore acting President of Hungary since the resignation of Pal Schmitt because of his plagiarism issue.
