A law firm representing the Hungarian government
has demanded in a letter that the "Aurul" mining company in Romania
transfer 29 billion forints ($100 million) to the Hungarian state treasury
within 15 days as compensation for the damage caused by last year's Tisza
River cyanide pollution. The firm threatened a lawsuit unless "Aurul"
complies with the demand and installs safety equipment, "Magyar Hirlap"
reported on 14 March. MSZ
