József Szájer, a Hungarian MEP from the ruling Fidesz party, who resigned on Sunday, has admitted that he was caught by the Brussels police during a private party on Friday evening in a venue in the centre of the Belgian capital.

As reported by the Belgian media, the party was a sex orgy with about 25 participants, mainly men. Under the current coronavirus lockdown rules such gatherings are strictly prohibited.

“The news reported in the Belgian press about a private party in Brussel on Friday. I was present”, wrote Szájer in a statement disseminated on Tuesday. In it he “deeply regret for violating the COVID restrictions, it was irresponsible on my part”, “with my resignation on Sunday I drew the political and personal conclusions”.

After the police asked for my identity- since I did not have ID on me – I declared that I was a MEP, says the explanation specifying that “The police continued the process and finally issued an official verbal warning and transported me home”.

“I did not use drugs. I offered the police to make an instant test, but they did not do it. According to the police they found extasy pill, but it is not mine, I have no knowledge who and how it placed.”

Szájer also apologized to his family, colleagues, and voters. “I ask them to evaluate my misstep on the background of thirty years of devoted and hard work. The misstep is strictly personal, I am the only who owes responsibility for it. I ask everyone not to extend it to my homeland, or to my political community”, he added.
