Index is Hungary's largest independent news site. Its investigative reporting has caused a stir on several occasions. Alongside the television station RTL Hungary, it is seen as one of the country's few remaining independent journalistic heavyweights. It is owned by the"Magyar Fejlődésért Alapítvány" foundation, whose sole curator is the media lawyer László Bodolai. The company that founded the foundation, NP Nanga Parbat 17 Zrt., was acquired by Gábor Ziegler and József Oltyán in September 2018. Gábor Ziegler is a longtime collaborator in the companies associated with Index. Józesf Oltyán is active in the KDNP, the sister party of ruling Fidesz. To what extent Index will be able to maintain its independence remains to be seen.
