Hungarian MP fails in appeal over dual-office breach

Ljubljana, 22 February - Ferenc Horvath, the MP for the Hungarian minority, will have to pay a EUR 1,000 fine after two courts have upheld the anti-graft watchdog's view that he is in breach of the incompatibility of dual offices as he also serves as the head of a minority organisation. Horvath is prepared to take the matter to "European court".
