A political ally of right-wing Hungarian president Victor Orban was among the twenty men caught in the act at a secret sex party in Brussels.
Conservative MEP Jozsef Szajer attended a secret sex party which was raided by police on Friday. The orgy organiser said he had done nothing wrong and claimed that he didn`t know that Mr Szajer was an MEP.
“I didn’t know he was an MEP. At my parties I invite friends and they bring other friends,” David Manzheley told Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws.
Twenty people were arrested at the house party in Brussels and the police said Szajer had narcotics on him, but he denied the allegations and challenged the police to conduct drugs test at the scene.
Manzheley, a 29-year-old doctoral student said it was just a normal party. “We talk, we have a drink – just like at the cafe. The only difference is that in the meantime, we’re having sex with each other. I don’t see what’s wrong with that. We’re all adults, everything is by mutual consent,” he said.
Following the event, Mr Szajer resigned from the European Parliament and quitted the ruling Fidesz party.
President Orban expressed disapproval of Mr Szajer`s actions saying: “We will not forget nor repudiate his 30 years of work, but his deed is unacceptable and indefensible. Following this, he took the only appropriate decision when he apologised and resigned from his position as member of the European Parliament and left Fidesz.”
Far-right allies of Mr Orban have disputed the event arguing that Mr Szajer was set up by the German secret service just to frustrate “the Hungarian-Polish war of independence in Brussels”.
Mr Szajer who served four terms in the Hungarian parliament before moving on to the European stage as an MEP in 2004, where he served for 16 years, helped to draft t a new Hungarian constitution, which states that: “Hungary shall protect the institution of marriage as the union of a man and a woman.”
On Monday Mr Szajer expressed regret for flouting Covid restrictions.
