HUNGARIAN OPPOSITION LEADER RECEIVES MORE BOMB THREATS. Jozsef Torgyan ,
chairman of the opposition Independent Smallholders' Party, has received
two more bomb threats since a bomb exploded outside his home (see "RFE/RL
Newsline," 17 March 1998), Hungarian media reported. Torgyan accused Prime
Minister Gyula Horn of not taking firm action against the "fascist attack"
and thereby encouraging "terrorism." Torgyan is the first party chairman in
Hungary to have requested and received secret service protection. In other
news, the Smallholders on 18 March signed an electoral cooperation pact
with the largest Romani organization in Hungary, the Democratic Alliance of
Hungarian Roma. MSZ
