Budapest (MTI) – The prosecutor has asked for life imprisonment for Bela Biszku, Hungary’s interior minister in Communist times, for the role he played in the retaliation that followed the anti-Soviet uprising in 1956.

Last year, a primary court sentenced Biszku to five years and six months in prison for war crimes in a non-binding decision. Both the 93-year old defendant, who pleaded innocent, and the prosecutor appealed the sentence.
