Hungary’s opposition leader, Katalin Novák, has announced her resignation after making a controversial decision to pardon a man convicted of covering up a sex abuse case at a children’s home. This decision has put pressure on Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who has been criticized for his handling of the issue.

In her televised address on Saturday, Novák apologized to any victims who felt she had not stood with them and acknowledged that she made a mistake. The pardon was granted last year but only came to light in recent days, sparking outrage and calls for Novák to step down from Hungary’s opposition.

The local news site 444.hu reported on the issue, which led to further controversy and challenges for Prime Minister Orbán. The pardon has created a significant challenge for the government as it raises questions about their commitment to combating child abuse and protecting vulnerable children in the country’s care homes.
