Sukoró case: a show trial according to DK

Two former heads of the Hungarian National Asset Management Inc. (MNV) were sentenced to three and two and a half years of jail. This is the final judgement of the Supreme Court. The Sukoró case dealt with an exchange of properties during the period of the socialist government in 2008.

According to the spokesman of the Democratic Coalition party (DK) the procedure is nothing but a show trial. The final judgement was announced on Thursday. Mr. Miklós Tátrai and Mr. Zsolt Császy, former heads of MNV were judged for attempted fraud. The spokesman of left-wing DK party Mr. Zsolt Gréczy said in an interview in Kossuth radios 180 hours programme that the judgement of the Supreme Court must be examined. He also said that if the judge committed a crime he himself should be sentenced to jail. He added that the judge of the appeal court drew attention to the list of malpractices of the prosecutor's office for 40 minutes and acquitted both Mr. Tátrai and Mr. Császy. Spokesman Mr. Gréczy added that no crime was committed and that Hungary wasn't damaged. Contrary to these facts these people were sentenced to prison. DK spokesman Mr. Gréczy said that everything is possible because a former Fidesz parliamentary candidate became the public prosecutor in Hungary. Though the judge of the Supreme Court served during the period of the left-wing Gyurcsány government in the ministry of justice, Mr. Gréczy said that a lot could have happened with people in the past eight years. Mr. Gréczy also talked about the letter from the head of DK, Mr Gyurcsany's to the socialist candidate for PM Mr. László Botka. DK was waiting for a response. The democratic opposition will have to come to an agreement before the fall. Even Mr. Botka would concede that without DK the election victory is beyond possibility, Mr. Gréczy said.
