Married MEP flees drug-fuelled 20-person ‘gang bang’ through window after raid

A Hungarian MEP fled the scene of a drug-fuelled "orgy" attended by more than 20 people after police raided the scene in the Belgian capital of Brussels.

József Szájer reportedly suffered a leg injury as he tried to make his escape though a window.

When apprehended by police Szájer, who is married, reportedly tried to talk his way out of being arrested by showing his parliamentary credentials.

Sarah Durant, a spokesman for the Brussels region’s deputy public prosecutor, said that at the time of his arrest Szájer’s hands were covered in blood.

“It is possible that he may have been injured while fleeing,” she said, adding “narcotics were found in his backpack… the man was unable to produce any identity documents."

Szájer admitted taking part in the party – which violated Belgium’s strict pandemic lockdown regulations – but denied that he was one of the partygoers that had been taking drugs.

He insisted that an ecstasy tablet recovered from the scene was not his.

Two other partygoers attempted to claim diplomatic immunity when arrested. A source told the local DH Sports newspaper: “We interrupted a gang bang”.

Szájer, 59, later tendered his resignation, and issued a statement which read: ”After the police asked for my identity – since I did not have ID on me – I declared that I was an MEP.

"The police continued the process and finally issued an official verbal warning and transported me home.

"I did not use drugs. I offered to the police to take an instant test, but they did not do it."

Szájer added: "I deeply regret violating the Covid restrictions – it was irresponsible on my part. I am ready to pay the fine that occurs.

"With my resignation on Sunday I drew the political and personal consequences.

"I apologise to my family, to my colleagues, to my voters. I ask them to evaluate my misstep against a background of thirty years of devoted and hard work.

"The misstep is strictly personal. I am the one who owns responsibility for it."

Belgian MEP Assita Kanko told The Sun : "(His actions are) terribly inappropriate. The MEPs present must certainly be punished. Everyone equal before the law."

An EU Parliament source quoted by the Sun said that Szájer’s diplomatic immunity would only cover prosecutions connected to his work as an MEP.

Violations of Belgium’s lockdown rules, which have closed all bars, as well as making mask-wearing compulsory and limiting social events to a maximum of four people, carry a €250 (£224) fine.
