Csatáry set free after Hungarian court ends home detention

The Buda Municipal Court has chosen not to prolong the home detention of László Csatáry, an alleged Nazi war criminal who is believed to be responsible for sending up to 16,000 Jews from Košice to concentration camps during the Second World War, the Hungarian newswire MTI reported.

The Buda Municipal Court has chosen not to prolong the home detention of László Csatáry, an alleged Nazi war criminal who is believed to be responsible for sending up to 16,000 Jews from Košice to concentration camps during the Second World War, the Hungarian newswire MTI reported.

The authorities in Hungary have yet to confirm the report.

The Hungarian office of the prosecutor said that the only body responsible for lengthening Csatáry’s custody is a court, and that only the court is eligible to comment on such rulings, the TASR newswire wrote on August 21.

Hungarian police arrested Csatáry on July 18, 2012, after Britain’s Sun newspaper published photos of him living in Budapest. He had previously been listed as a fugitive. The same day local courts place him in custody, where he spent the following 30 days.
