Hungarian coalition party calls for spy files to be opened
"We have asked the same question countless times: should we reveal every spy one-by-one or finally solve the problem and bring openness to the issue of spying?" the liberal Alliance of Free Democrats said
in a statement.
The liberals' challenge was aimed at senior coalition partner, the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP), and the main opposition party Fidesz.
It came after a weekly magazine on Thursday claimed that a former foreign minister had spied for the communist authorities.
Elet and Irodalom (Life and Literature) magazine claimed that Janos Martonyi, using the codename Marosvasarhely, spied on Hungarian emigres during trips abroad as a student in the 1960s.
