Intro:  Hungarian officials are defending the recent police
crackdown against illegal immigrants.  But V-o-A's Barry Wood
reports allegations of police brutality and harassment of
foreigners have prompted concern within the expatriate community.


Text:  Over the past month, Hungarian police have conducted a
series of raids on residences and places of entertainment,
arresting people who are in Hungary illegally.  Over one thousand
people--mostly from Eastern Europe and the former Soviet
Union--are being detained prior to deportation.

Hungarian authorities defend the raids, calling them a legitimate
response to a four-fold increase in crimes committed by
foreigners.

Police spokesman Andras Turos says foreigners are welcome in
Hungary, but they must behave and obey local laws.  Parliament
has recently tightened visa requirements and made it more
difficult for foreigners to obtain residence permits. Police have
also been given increased powers to enforce immigration laws.

Critics call the new laws and the police crackdown racist.  They
say homosexuals and dark-skinned minorities, particularly
gypsies, are targets.

The head of the American Chamber of Commerce in Budapest says
tightened procedures for obtaining residence permits are poorly
understood within the expatriate community and that more public
education is necessary.  Long-term visas are being processed only
if the applicant can prove that he or she already has a place to
live.

Police deny that the crackdown is discriminatory.  But they do
concede that there have been occasional cases of people being
slightly injured in police raids.

Hungary has experienced a rapid influx of foreigners over the
past three years.  The country is also experiencing a severe
housing shortage, with over 100-thousand Hungarian families
awaiting apartments. (Signed)

SEPTEMBER 2, 1994 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EERC Announces Second Energy and Environment Conference in Prague

GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- To create partnership opportunities that
solve energy and environmental issues in East Central Europe, the
University of North Dakota's Energy & Environmental Research
Center (EERC) will cosponsor its second conference in Prague,
Czech Republic, Nov. 1-5.

    "Energy and Environment: Transitions in East Central
Europe," first held in April 1992 and attended by 300 people from
26 nations, is organized and cosponsored by the EERC and the
Power Research Institute of Prague (EGU Praha).  The 1992
conference was the first international conference to focus on the
energy and environmental needs of East Central Europe, which
includes Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania,
Bulgaria and the former Yugoslavia.

    "One of the greatest challenges facing market economies
throughout the world is providing the energy needed for economic
growth in an environmentally acceptable manner," says EERC
Director Gerald Groenewold.  "This conference continues the
EERC's and EGU's joint commitment initiated over four years ago
to find solutions to the short- and long-term energy and
environmental problems facing East Central Europe."

    Speakers, panelists and other presenters currently scheduled
to attend the conference are from the Czech Republic, the U.S.,
the United Kingdom, Sweden, the Netherlands, Poland, Germany,
Slovakia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Austria, Ukraine, Russia, Yugoslavia
and Canada.  Topics include conventional and advanced energy
generation systems, the economic operation of energy systems, air
pollution controls, power system retrofitting and repowering,
financing options, regulatory issues, energy resource options,
waste utilization and disposal, and long-range environmental
issues.

       The conference will be preceded by two workshops in
Prague Oct. 31 through Nov. 1 sponsored by the U.S. Department of
Energy's Morgantown (W. Va.) Energy Technology Center and
organized by the EERC.  "Smokeless Fuels from Brown Coal"
assesses technology for producing and using clean-burning
briquetted fuels from the brown coal found in East Central
Europe.  The second workshop, "Least-Cost Options for Utilization
of Brown Coal," will discuss opportunities for low-cost clean
coal technologies in the Czech Republic and the surrounding
region.  Both workshops will identify issues and solutions
leading to the formation of commercial ventures involving U.S.
technologies and Czech Republic industry.

    The first part of the two-part conference focuses on
immediate energy and environmental needs by addressing power
plant rehabilitation, environmental cleanup, and financing.  Part
two of the conference focuses on long-term problems involving
energy supply, energy efficiency and improved environmental
control.

    A panel discussion will cover benefits and barriers for U.S.
and East Central European partnerships, ways to overcome these
barriers, and promising areas for partnerships.  Panel members
are East Central European energy specialists who participated in
a 1992 training course at the EERC sponsored by the Institute of
International Education and funded by the Agency for
International Development.  A second panel discussion will
address the formation and implementation of partnerships and how
to make them work.

    Conference keynote speakers are Dr. Petr Karas, board
chairman, Czech Power Company (CEZ), Prague, Czech Republic;
Thomas Bechtel, director of METC; and Kurt Yeager, technical
operations group senior vice president, Electric Power Research
Institute (EPRI), Palo Alto, Calif.  

    The keynote presentations will focus on the current energy
situation in East Central Europe and address such problem areas
as power demand, regulatory, social and economic constraints,
available options and future power industry goals.

    Financial sponsors of the conference are the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C.; EPRI; Southern
Electric International, Birmingham, Ala.; Intera Information
Technologies, Ltd. Denver, Colo.; KFx Atlantic Partners,
Arlington, Va.; North Dakota Department of Economic Development
and Finance, Bismarck, N.D.; NRG Energy, Inc., Minneapolis,
Minn.; and POWER International, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  The U.S.
Department of Energy, Washington, D.C., is a conference
supporter.

    The EERC is one of UND's major sources of research funding,
attracting more than $20 million in fiscal year 1993 in federal,
state and private contracts.  The Center, which employs 260
people, is an international leader in energy and environmental
research, conducting projects for clients from throughout the
U.S. and the world.

RFE/RL Daily Report
                   No. 199, 19 October 1994


PORTUGUESE PRESIDENT IN POLAND. Mario Soares said in Warsaw on 18
October that his country supports Poland's plans to join NATO and
the European Union. Rzeczpospolita on 19 October quotes Soares as
emphasizing that "Poland's presence in NATO will constitute a step
toward peace and security in Europe." Gazeta Wyborcza said the
same day that Poland's contacts with Portugal will help the former
to reach its goal of joining Western organizations. The Portuguese
government has consistently argued that the issue of Polish,
Czech, Hungarian, and Slovak membership in the EU should be
approached cautiously, perhaps out of concern that the Central
European countries' admission would make it more difficult to sell
Portuguese products within the EU. Portugal is also concerned that
the Central Europeans will demand economic aid from the union.
Portugal has until now been one of the main recipients of EU aid.
-- Jan de Weydenthal, RFE/RL Inc.

HUNGARIAN PARLIAMENT APPROVES SUPPLEMENTARY BUDGET. Hungary's
parliament on 18 October approved by a vote of 203 to 23 with one
abstention the 1994 supplementary budget, MTI reported. The
central budget deficit is to be raised from some 329.5 billion
forint to 339.9 billion. Central budget expenditures will rise to
1.6 trillion forint, an increase of some 188 billion. Revenues
will amount to 1.3 trillion forint. Finance Minister Laszlo Bekesi
says the aim of the supplementary budget is to create the
conditions for policy measures aimed at stabilizing the Hungarian
economy and introducing structural changes. -- Alfred Reisch,
RFE/RL Inc.

SPANISH FOREIGN MINISTER IN HUNGARY. Javier Solana visited Hungary
on 16 and 17 October to attend ceremonies honoring the late
Spanish diplomat Angel Sanz Briz, who saved thousands of Jews in
Hungary in 1944. Solana held talks with President Arpad Goncz,
Parliament Speaker Zoltan Gal, and his Hungarian counterpart,
Laszlo Kovacs. MTI quotes Solana as telling his hosts they could
always count on Spain's "understanding and support" for Hungary's
efforts to integrate with Europe. He also proposed the creation of
a joint committee to study Spain's experience in such efforts.
Kovacs, for his part, urged increased bilateral trade but said he
hoped Hungary's trade deficit with Spain could be reduced. Trade
between the two countries amounts to $300 million a year. --
Alfred Reisch, RFE/RL Inc.

HUNGARIAN COALITION PARTNERS CHOOSE JOINT CANDIDATES. The ruling
Hungarian Socialist Party and Alliance of Free Democrats have
reached an electoral cooperation agreement for the December local
elections in the city of Szeged, southern Hungary, MTI reported on
18 October. Istvan Szalay, a college teacher, is their joint
candidate for mayor. In addition, four HSP and three AFD joint
candidates will run in Szeged's seven electoral districts. --
Alfred Reisch, RFE/RL Inc.

HUNGARIAN FOREIGN TRADE. The Central Statistical Office reports
that Hungary's foreign trade registered a deficit of 270 billion
forint ($2.6 billion) during the first eight months of 1994,
according to MTI on 18 October. Imports at current prices amounted
to 926 billion forint, up 35% on the first eight months of 1993.
Exports totaled 655.5 billion forint, a 30% increase over the same
period of last year. While imports from the EU and Eastern
European countries increased, those from EFTA and developing
countries were down. Exports to the EU countries grew most
rapidly, while those to Eastern European and developing countries
increased slightly. -- Alfred Reisch, RFE/RL Inc.

Haliho mindenki!

Sajnos,sok jo hirrel nem szolgalhatok,miutan a Kispest 0-1 -es felido 
utan,0-2-re vesztett es ha voltak is remenyeink egy esetleges csoda 
iranyaba,azzal mostmar nyugodtan leszamolhatunk.
A Kispest ugy vesztett,hogy eselye sem volt meg a dontetlenre sem.
A 15.percben Munch szerzett vezetest,majd a 81. percben Paulo Sergio 
adta meg a kegyelemdofest a magyar csapatnak.
A kispesti csapat leggyengebb jatekosa Kovacs Kalman volt.aki semmit 
nem tudott atmenteni a Twente elleni formajabol,ezert csereltek le a 
masodik felidoben.A csapat legjobbja a valogatott hatved Banfi volt.
A nemeteknel P.Sergio volt a legveszelyesebb,a veteran Schuster pedig 
kivaloan osztogatott.Meg kell jegyeni meg,hogy a bajor csapat egy 
fikarcnyival sem adott ki tobbet magabol,mint amennyi ehhez a biztos 
gyozelemhez kellett.


A tartalekosan kiallo Ferencvarosiak csutortokon este jatszanak a 
Portoval.Sok az eltiltott es 
serult(Lipcsei,Simon,Szekeres,Paling,Nagy Zs.,Kecskes,Kopunovics,)
Kuznyesov akesoi igazolas miatt nem 
jatszhat.Azert,bizakodjunk,egyebet ugysem tehetunk.!
