A politician has resigned from parliament, after he allegedly broke Covid restrictions and was busted fleeing a sex party.

Jozsef Szajer, a member of Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party was among about 20 people at the house party in a central Brussels apartment on Friday, who were detained by Belgian police.

Coronavirus lockdown rules forbid any gathering of more than four people in a closed space in the country.

Szajer was reportedly stopped by police after he tried to flee the party by coming down the drain pipe, the BBC reported. It has also been alleged Szajer had drugs on him at the time.

In a statement, Belgian prosecutors referred to a man by the initials ‘S.J.’ who they said had been found with narcotics in his backpack after attempting to flee via a gutter and who later identified himself by means of a diplomatic passport.

Hungarian politician caught with drugs after Belgian ‘house party’

Szajer admitted he was at a party on Friday night, though he insisted he did not do drugs and alleges he told police he would submit to a drug test.

“A newspaper article appeared in the Belgian press today about a house party in Brussels on Friday, which I attended,” a translation of the statement said.

Szajer claims he told police he was a representative, though at the time he did not have ID on him, adding that police gave him a verbal warning and he was taken home.

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

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

“I am sorry that I have broken the rules of assembly, this was irresponsible on my part, and I will take the sanctions that come with it.”

The party has been referred to as a “sex party” or a “gay orgy” by European-based media outlets, the BBC reported many of the attendees were men and some were naked at the time of the bust.

Jozsef Szajer resigns from European Union

After the news broke, Szajer released a statement addressing his resignation from the European Union.

“For some time now, participating in the daily political struggle has been an increasing mental strain on me, and those on the battlefield must be in a state of combat,” Szajer said, declaring the end to him being an elected representative.

“In the future, instead of practical political activity, I intend to continue the work started when the regime change took place in a more far-reaching, intellectual field.

“I will carry out my new tasks with the commitment and determination I have had so far. I will provide information on the specifics later.”

According to Reuters, the conservative Fidesz party portrays itself as a champion of Christian and family values.
