Brussels Covid lockdown orgy: Hungarian MEP for anti-LGBT party resigns

Police raid lockdown orgy in Brussels: Hungarian MEP for Viktor Orban’s anti-LGBT party resigns after being caught by cops shinning down a drainpipe from 25-strong male sex party also attended by EU diplomats

  • Police in Brussels broke up a sex party held illegally during lockdown on Friday 
  • Officers said 25 naked and ‘mostly male’ attendees were taking part in the party 
  • MEP fled via a window, hurt himself shinning down a drainpipe, and was caught
  • Jozsef Szajer, of anti-LGBT Fidesz party, has admitted it was him and resigned

A Hungarian MEP for Viktor Orban’s anti-LGBT Fidesz party has resigned after he was caught breaking lockdown to attend a mostly-male orgy in Brussels.

Jozsef Szajer, a founding member of Fidesz, allegedly tried to flee the 25-strong orgy through a window as police busted in on Friday night, attempting to shin down a drainpipe but hurting himself in the process.

Caught by cops he then tried to claim diplomatic immunity, according to Belgian media, before being let off with a warning.

Ecstasy pills were also found in a backpack belonging to Szajer, prosecutors said, but he denied taking them, added that he has no idea where they came from.  

Belgian media reported that the ‘naked’ party attendees also included a number of EU diplomats, who have not been identified.

Szajer resigned suddenly on Sunday, two days after the party, and initially gave no explanation – saying only that he was under ‘mental strain’.

But on Tuesday, as news of the orgy began to circulate in the Belgian press, he admitted being at the party and offered a full apology. 

‘A newspaper ran in the Belgian press today a story about a house party in Brussels on Friday that I was attending,’ he said in a statement issued to the Hungarian press.

Fidesz’s anti-LGBT policies 

Fidesz openly opposes equal rights for LGBT people, and has passed a number of laws designed to discriminate against them.

In May, the party approved legislation that banned people from changing the gender they were born with.

And last month, the party proposed legislation that would limit adoption to only heterosexual married couples.

The country’s constitution already defines marriage as strictly between a man and a woman.

‘After the police asked for my identity – because I didn’t have an ID card in my pocket – I declared that I was a Member of the European Parliament. 

‘The police dealt with the case, gave me a verbal warning and brought me home.

‘I didn’t use drugs, I offered to the police on the spot to have an official test done, but they didn’t. 

‘Police said an ecstasy pill was found. It’s not mine, I don’t know who brought it or how. I made a statement to the police about this.

‘I am sorry that I have violated the rules of assembly, it was irresponsible on my part, I will take the penalties for that.’

Earlier reports had suggested that Szajer attempted to flee the party out of a window and escape down a drainpipe, but he hurt himself in the process and was caught.

Belgian media reported that he had initially tried to claim diplomatic immunity. 

Diplomats were also said to have taken part in the secret party, which was on the first floor above a cafe, where drugs were also found.

It is believed that all those involved were let off with a fine and a warning.

Details of the incident were confirmed by prosecutors in Brussels, but there was no immediate reaction from officials at the European Parliament.

Szajer was one of the founding members of Viktor Orban’s right-wing Fidesz party in 1990, and was the party’s parliamentary leader between 1994 and 2002.

He then served as vice-president of the party until being elected to the European Parliament in 2004.

There, he became the vice-chairman and chief whip of the European People’s Party and part of the European Parliament’s Committee on Legal Affairs.

Fidesz openly opposes equal rights for gay people, and last month proposed amending the constitution in such a way as to guarantee that only heterosexual married couples will be able to adopt children.

The constitution already defines marriage as solely between a man and a woman.

In May, the party passed laws that mean transgender people will not longer be able to change their identities – defining a person’s gender by the number of chromosomes they were born with.
