Meanwhile, the oligarch who fell out with Orbán claimed that back in the eighties, during their military service, Orbán confessed to him (the two were close friends) that he consented to a request to report on fellow soldiers to the secret service. Whether that's true or not, the close-knit circle of friends who founded Fidesz weren't exactly from a dissident background (the father of Orbán himself was a mine boss who'd gain ownership of "his" mine in 1990), in fact one of them was the son-in-law of the interior minister.
