A Labour Party request for correspondence from the Government of Hungary after comments from Prime Minister John Key criticising Hungarian troops in Afghanistan has been declined. The request under the Official Information Act had asked for copies of all correspondence from the Government of Hungary and its representatives relating to Mr Key’s comments on the Hungarian Provincial Reconstruction Team in Afghanistan….
Asked about the claim that Hungarian troops did not patrol after nightfall, Mr Key said: “As far as I’m aware, the Hungarians don’t go out at night. Not in Afghanistan anyway – they might in Budapest.”
