Liberals call on Orbán to provide partial access to communist informer files
Budapest (MTI) – Files on secret service informants of Hungary’s communist era should be opened up, at the very least to the targets of informants without the redaction of names, the Liberal Party leader told a press conference on Monday.
Gábor Fodor said that while Prime Minister Viktor Orbán “essentially blames Western Europe” for the crimes of communism, “he is doing everything he can to restrict freedoms” in his own country.
The issue of the secret files has long “poisoned” the atmosphere in Hungary, Fodor said, adding that the right-wing governments have not gone to any great effort to resolve them.
