LMP resubmits bill on publishing agent files

LMP is on Wednesday submitting a bill on seeking to disclose files on communist-era state security apparatus "for the 28th time".

The opposition party’s lawmaker Laszlo Lorant Keresztes spoke to the press on the occasion of European Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Totalitarian Dictatorships.

“Dictatorship’s secrets can’t be the bedrock of a democracy,” he said, adding that LMP had brought the bill, which sought to reveal how “state security turned their political power into economic power”, multiple times before MPs since 2014.

The ruling Fidesz-led parliamentary majority stymied the attempt 27 times, he added.

He insisted that “every government” in office since the change in political system bore “a heavy responsibility for all of this”.
