History

The National Bank of Hungary (MNB) yesterday said it is suing Zoltán Bodnár (pictured) of the opposition Hungarian Liberal Party on charges that he made false statements regarding the activities of the central bank. 

The MNB said the statements were "made purely for political gain" and asked for corrections from the media that carried them. The MNB referred to Bodnárʼs statements on the central bankʼs wage policy, property purchases and oversight procedures. Bodnar is a former central bank deputy governor.
