The Handó record is secret for 10 years
The voice record which was made on the closed doors hearing of the president of the National Judicial Office is not public for 10 years. The Constitutional Court only published the epitome of the record on their website. From this not a lot is coming out: according to the epitome of the record Handó mostly was talking about the overloaded situation of the courts.
As we already reported, Handó Tünde, the president of the NJO – wife of Szájer József, who is a Fidesz party representative in the European Parliament – had to account for her power about the case transferences in front of the board. According to the order of the Constitutional Court’s standing orders the voice record is a „secret” for 10 years. The order says: about the hearings they made voice records, which will be provision by the Secretary for 10 years, „the voice record is not public until the time of the provision”. Our paper is trying to get the record from the board in the form of public interest data application.
Anyway the Constitutional Court reversed ex post facto in December, 2012 the disposals which allowed the case transferences and which were temporary disposals. But the Fidesz didn’t concede, and they and they put these disposals into the Constitution. One of the reasons of the hearing at the Constitutional Court is the proposal from Hagyó Miklós and his lawyer, where they objected that Handó decided about the transference of the BKV case from Budapest without the support of the right of remedy.
