Budapest, April 25 (MTI) – Hungary’s National Remembrance Committee (NEB), tasked with investigating the acts of the communist regime, has asked for some ten thousand pages of secret military files from the communist era to be declassified, the daily Magyar Idők said on Monday.

After two years of thorough research, the committee proposed to the Military National Security Service which documents from 1950 to 1964 should have their confidential status lifted, István Ötvös, a historian and a member of the NEB, told the paper.

The final say on allowing access to the files now rests with the Military National Security Service, he said, adding that the body is expected to make a decision soon.
