Hungary - Union to sue airline company - May 24, 2010

The United Union of Aviation Workers has announced to ask the chief prosecutor and the Hungarian Financial Supervisory Authority to prosecute Malév Hungarian Airlines in the case of the missing HUF 812 million (Euro 2.9 million). In June 2009 PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) refused to comment on the company’s 2007 annual report, starting that Malév had paid this amount to a charter company without proving the delivery of services. PwC did not receive any certificates as to ascertain these expenses. Malév (re-nationalised in February 2010) said that Martin Gauss, the company CEO started to screen in 2009 as to explore past unfavourable contracts, and in March 2010 made a complaint at the National Bureau of Investigation (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 April 2010).
