He resigned as a member of Hungary’s anti-gay government system after being arrested at an orgy in the basement of a Belgian gay bar that had been held in violation of precautions against the coronavirus.
On Sunday, József Szájer resigned from the position of MP of the European Parliament representing the Fidesz party of Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban, Politico’s European news portal announced on Tuesday.
Szájer allegedly admitted in a statement that he had participated in a “private party” and said he had carried out a “strictly personal” “step back”.
The Hungarian government, for which Szájer worked, recently restricted the rights of the country’s LGBT community.
“It was irresponsible on my part,” he continued in the statement, referring to a violation of coronavirus regulations against large gatherings. “I’m ready to stand up for the money that arises.”
On Friday in Brussels, police tumbled in the basement of a gay bar – which officials described as an orgy – which attracted Szájer and 24 other revelers, allegedly more diplomats.
Drugs were allegedly found at the secret rally, but Szájer denied indulgence in a statement.
All participants, most of whom were naked men, were fined for violating the precautionary measures of the epidemic, reports said.
