Bugár says Beneš Decrees not dead

THE HEAD of the SMK ethnic Hungarian party, Béla Bugár, 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. Bugár said Hungarian Slovaks still faced some discrimination from the laws, such as being barred from the process of restitution of property nationalised by the communists.
