The governing Fidesz parliamentary group called on Monday for the cabinet to set up by the end of June a "Historical Memory Committee" to investigate "communist-era crimes". The committee will comprise experts, not politicians, and will not be only temporary – it could operate for "as much as several decades", caucus leader János Lázár said.
"Fidesz, as a party of regime change, does not intend to hide things from the Hungarian public – we are interested in the full disclosure of the crimes of the communist dictatorship," Lázár said. However, his ostensibly anti-communist party caused an outcry last month by voting down an opposition proposal to open the archives of the former state security services.
