Hungary ex PM Gyurcsany charged

Hungary’s public prosecutor on Monday officially charged Ferenc Gyurcsany, a former prime minister, with overstepping his authority while in office in connection with a land-swap deal involving a contested casino project, politics.hu reported. Gyurcsany attended a 45-minute hearing at the Central Prosecutor’s Office in Budapest starting at 1pm. People demonstrating in support of the Socialist politician were gathered in front of the office when he arrived. Gyurcsany, whose parliamentary immunity has been lifted so he can face charges, is suspected of having sidestepped competition in the Sukoro casino project by giving it priority-status by the government.
