Former Hungarian official charged for war crimes

Hungarian prosecutors, today, charged a former Communist Party official for war crimes committed during the anti-Soviet uprising in 1956.

The Official, Bela Biszju, was charged due to a law passed in 2011 that stipulated that accountability war crimes and crimes against humanity could not lapse.

Biszku, who was detained last year, was sentenced to life imprisonment for war crimes committed as an abettor.
