Hungarian President Resigns after Pardoning Child Sex Abuser, Sparks Controversy

Hungarian President Katalin Novák resigned on Saturday following her decision to pardon a man convicted of covering up a sex abuse case at a children’s home. The controversy posed a challenge for Hungary’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán.

In her televised address, Novák admitted that she had made a mistake and issued an apology to any victims who felt she had not stood with them. The decision to pardon the man was made last year, but it only caught the public’s attention in recent days after a report by the local news site 444.hu. This report was met with outrage, leading Hungary’s opposition to call for Katalin Novák to step down.
