Róbert Répássy Appointed State Secretary of Justice


President János Áder has appointed Róbert Répássy to the post of state secretary of justice effective Dec. 11, Justice Minister Judit Varga said on Facebook on Friday.


His predecessor, Pál Völner resigned after the public prosecutor’s office asked the speaker of parliament to lift his immunity in the wake of an investigation into suspected bribery and other crimes.

Völner’s lawyer said on Tuesday that his client denied having committed any crimes and insisted that he had carried out his duties as a state secretary and ministerial commissioner lawfully.
