Sándor Pintér, Hungary’s Minister of the Interior, says he has no links with the private security firm that he sold in 2010 and that has continued to gain one lucrative government contract after another.
Pintér says he sold the business before his appointment as minister in 2010 explicitly in order to avoid any possible conflict of interest.
