Leader resigns in live address over immunity from prosecution granted to second-in-command at children's home


Hungarian President Katalin Novak has resigned following outrage over a decision to pardon a man implicated in a child sexual abuse case.

Ms Novak, a close ally of Hungary’s conservative prime minister Viktor Orban, pardoned some two dozen people in April 2023, among them the deputy director of the children’s home, who helped the institution’s former director hide his crimes.

“I made a mistake ... Today is the last day that I address you as a president,” Ms Novak said as she announced her resignation in a speech broadcast on state television.
