A verdict was announced in the case of the defendants of the Schadl-Völner trial who waived their right to a trial in the preparatory phase in February and admitted their guilt based on the indictment – writes HVG.hu. Six executors who paid György Schadl in exchange for his commission and four other defendants did the same.
However, György Schadl and Pál Völner denied their guilt, in the case of him and the other ten defendants in the case, the court will announce a verdict at the end of the trial.
The six executors who confessed during the preparatory phase of the criminal trial received a suspended prison sentence of three or four years and a fine of five to five million forints.
In addition, they were banned from executive work for five years, but the court did not consider it proportionate to ban them from all occupations that required a law school degree. The court assessed the passage of time and the upbringing of a minor child as mitigating circumstances for several defendants, and for one of them, the illness.
The defendants admitted that in exchange for their appointment, they would hand over a good part or all of the taxable profit of their office to György Schadl. For some, this meant 42.6 million, while others received 254.8 million. In return, according to the indictment, György Schadl returned 1-3 million per month to them, although there is an executor who received almost a third of the 101 million paid back.
