Hungarian court clears terror suspects

Budapest, Nov 26 (IANS) A Hungarian court has ruled that four men detained as suspected terrorists were in fact Second World War enthusiasts, a media report said on Thursday.

The four men were detained last week after old weapons explosives were found in their car during spot-checks by Hungary’s anti-terrorist police following the November 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people, BBC reported.

Hungary’s anti-terrorist police chief Janos Hajdu said machine guns, silencers, and even a bomb-making laboratory were found at the home of one of the suspects

The Budapest court said on Wednesday that “circumstances of the case point to the opposite”.

The main suspect, it said, had no links with extremists and no criminal record.

It said the man “lives with his mother and stepfather and is a World War Two enthusiast.”

All four, however, remain under investigation for unlicensed possession of equipment capable of making explosives.
