Hungarian house speaker unveils memorial to 1956 revolution in Mexico

Mexico City (MTI) – House Speaker Lászlo Kövér inaugurated a memorial dedicated to the heroes of the Hungarian revolution and freedom fight in 1956, at the Hungarian Embassy in Mexico City late on Friday, parliament’s press chief told MTI.

The memorial was sculpted by Pál Kepenyes, a Hungarian artist living in Mexico, who spent several years in prison during the Stalinist rule before 1956 and took an active part in the revolution.

On Thursday, Kövér held talks with Senate President Pablo Escudero Morales and Chamber of Deputies President Javier Bolanos Aguilar, and addressed a formal session of the senate commemorating the centenary of the adoption of the Mexican constitution.
