Man wanted for terrorist acts arrested

Police have arrested a man accused of terrorist acts committed as a member of the Hunnia radical movement between 2007 and 2009, the police website said on Thursday.

A Budapest court sentenced the 41-year-old man to 15 years in prison in a non-binding ruling in March, said. The accused escaped before the trial and was apprehended on Tuesday in Kutaso, in northern Hungary, by local police, it said.

The trial was the first in Hungary where people were accused of committing terrorist acts as members of an organisation. Members were charged with attacks against properties of then-ruling leftist Liberal politicians and other groups.
