HUNGARIAN EXTREMIST MAINTAINS TISZA POLLUTION WAS DELIBERATE.
"There are increasing signs that point to a deliberate act
having caused disaster on the River Tisza," Istvan Csurka,
chairman of the Hungarian Justice and Life Party told
reporters on 29 March, one day after a new toxic spill was
announced in Romania (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 29 March 2000).
Csurka claimed as "evidence" Prime Minister Viktor Orban's
recent remarks that the Romanian government is refusing to
name dangerous plants operating near rivers flowing into
Hungary. "If such essential information is not released,
despite a basic treaty being in force between the two
countries, then secrecy prevails," Csurka concluded. MSZ
