Budapest, November 1 (MTI) – The chairman of parliament’s national security committee, Socialist lawmaker Zsolt Molnar, said on Sunday that he will put the case of political think-tank Szazadveg, which is accused of handling state secrets, on the agenda of the committee’s next meeting.
Molnar said in a statement that the committee seeks a briefing concerning who among the think-tank’s staff had access to which official documents and on what basis.
The meeting is expected to take place next week or the following one, he said.
The Hungarian Liberal Party called for the committee to be convened to examine allegations that Szazadveg had seen classified state documents.
In a written answer to a parliamentary question, the minister of interior, Sandor Pinter, said staff of the Szazadveg School of Politics had not received certification to handle state secrets in the period before 2013.
