Hungarian government demands compensation from "Aurul"

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
