Basically we have a man called Lajos Simicska here, one of the richest and most influental man of Hungary, and a very close friend of the prime miniseter Viktor Orban since the university. Simicska lives very much in the background for a decade (althought his companies wins billiobs of euros of public money every year since Orban is the prime minister), basically it made to frontpage when after like 8 years a photographer could actually take a picture of him last autumn. The next day it was announced that there will be a law to "protect privacy", and now here it is.Rumors say when Simicska has a meeting in public place, he doesn't speak but pass little pieces of paper hidden under his palm to his partner...like in some retard maffia movie. In the previous Orban period Simicska became the head of the national tax authority, and on the very first days of his new role the shredders were working all night there destroying previous reports about his own companies.
I live in Hungary, maybe i can help you guys understand the reason of this law. Those who guessed it might be that politicans currently ruling Hungary aren't the best friends of transparency and publicity are close to the truth. The history of this law is so typical and says so much about the current state (capture) of Hungary that it worths to know. Since 2010 when they were elected, this government sistematically attacking the freedom of press, opressing opposing media, turns public media their own propaganda channels, and created the most questonable media law of europe ( see eg, http://www.hrw.org/news/2011/01/07/hungary-media-law-endangers-press-freedom ), and now we are at that stage that reported frauds of the incoming elections are ignored by the authorities.
yeah, he is blue merle, you can see some other pics of him (including this photo's original, colour version) in my DP gallery.
