Budapest, October 13 (MTI) – The opposition Jobbik party has called on the government to release the full list of Hungary’s communist-era agents and informants with a view to the 60th anniversary of the 1956 anti-Soviet revolution, a party spokesman said on Thursday.

“It is a shame on the Hungarian political elite that 60 years after 1956, access to the files of the era’s secret services is still restricted,” Ádám Mirkóczki told a press conference.

He criticised the opposition Socialists and ruling Fidesz for their “collaboration” in preventing the release of the list of agents.

Mirkóczki said that instead of lavish ceremonies it would be “a due act” by the government to commemorate the annivesary by allowing unrestricted access to the files and reveal the names of those who had served the previous regime and had managed to fill political and business positions in post-communist Hungary.
