HUNGARIAN EXTREMIST PARTY TO COMMEMORATE WARTIME PREMIER.
Hungarian Justice and Life Party (MIEP) members of the
Budapest City Council will attend a mass for wartime Prime
Minister Laszlo Bardossy at St. Stephen's Basilica on 16
January. Bardossy was sentenced to death and executed in 1946
for war crimes. A MIEP official said the party's members in
the city council had planned to seek a retrial for Bardossy
but decided they would wait until the "views of society and
historians have changed." MSZ
