Bugár says Beneš Decrees not dead

Béla Bugár, head of the SMK ethnic Hungarian party, said on a weekend STV program that his party would bring up the Beneš Decrees (world war two edicts barring Hungarians and Germans from land and citizenship) if the SMK was part of the next government after September 2002 elections. Although the SMK had promised not to bring up the decrees during this election term, and although he would not ask the decrees be abolished, Bugár said Hungarian Slovaks still faced some discrimination from the laws, such as being barred from the process of restitution of property nationalized by the communists.
