Anti-LGBT Politician Resigns After Police Catch Him Fleeing ’25-Man Orgy’ Through Window: Report




A member of the European Parliament (MEP) representing Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz anti-LGBTQ party has abruptly resigned from his position in Brussels after he was caught leaving what reports described as a “25-man orgy” on Friday, reports Business Insider.

Jozsef Szajer unexpectedly quit on Sunday after he admitted to breaching Belgium’s strict COVID-19 lockdown rules to attend a sex party, Politico reported on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, it was reported in Belgium that police had broken up an orgy involving 25 naked men above a bar in the center of Brussels, only several hundred meters from the Belgian capital’s main police station.

The reports, including in local paper La Derniere Heure, said that several diplomats and at least one unnamed MEP were discovered by police at the party.



The newspaper quoted a local police source as saying, “We interrupted a gang bang.”

Orban’s Hungarian government has curtailed LGBTQ rights in a so-called defense of what it terms “Christian values” since he was elected prime minister in 2010. This year alone, the Hungarian government has ended gender recognition for transgender people and legislated to ensure that only heterosexual married couples can adopt children.

Szajer, a right-wing politician who fronted Fidesz in the European Parliament, helped rewrite Hungary’s constitution to “protect the institution of marriage as the union of a man and a woman,” The Times of London reported.

Szajer climbed out a first-floor window and was spotted “fleeing along the gutter,” the public prosecutor’s office said.

A source close to the investigation told Politico that officers were called after a complaint about a “night-time disturbance.”

The public prosecutor’s office said: “A passer-by reported to the police that he had seen a man fleeing along the gutter; he was able to identify the man. The man’s hands were bloody. It is possible that he may have been injured while fleeing. Narcotics were found in his backpack. The man was unable to produce any identity documents. He was escorted to his place of residence, where he identified himself as S. J. (1961) by means of a diplomatic passport.”

Later on Monday, Szájer released a statement on his website confirming his involvement in what he described as a “house party”.

“After the police identification, I told the officers that I am a Member of the European Parliament, as I had no ID on me at the time, the police conducted the necessary procedure, I received a warning and was taken home,” he wrote.

Szájer said he had not taken drugs, which authorities said were found at the scene in Szajer’s bag.

“I am sorry for breaking the ban on gatherings, it was an irresponsible act on my part, I will undergo any sanction this might incur,” he added.

Szájer said his decision to resign came after a period of “extended soul-searching”.

Belgium is in the middle of a second lockdown, with restaurants and bars closed, a curfew in place and gatherings of more than four people in public spaces banned.
