Former minister in charge of the secret services Gyorgy Szilvasy and two 
former leaders of the National Security Office (NBH) could be charged 
with illegal attacks against the IT systems of government agencies, news 
portal Index said on Wednesday.

Gyorgy Szilvasy, Lajos Galambos and Sandor Laborc are charged with 
espionage for organising a series of hacks against the government’s 
central computer system and the IT systems of government agencies while 
they were leaders of the secret services, Index reported without 
revealing its source of information.

Szilvasy’s attorney Peter Sebes declined to comment on the report, and 
said that details of the case were classified information. He said, 
however, that he had proposed that the protocols taken when Szilvasy was 
questioned should be made public.
