Indicted for murder

Prosecutors say they have submitted a murder indictment against the former head of Hungary’s swimming federation for allegedly ordering the 1998 killing of a rival media mogul. Budapest Chief Prosecutor Tibor Ibolya said yesterday in a statement that Tamas Gyarfas decided to have Janos Fenyo killed over business disputes and personal conflicts. According to prosecutors, after his initial attempt to hire a killer fell through despite paying half the fee of 12 million forints (then US$60,000), Gyarfas entrusted Tamas Portik — currently in prison for ordering an unrelated underground murder — with having Fenyo killed. A Slovak man, Josef Rohac, was sentenced to life in prison in 2017 for Fenyo’s murder. Fenyo was gunned down on February 11, 1998, while sitting in his car at a Budapest traffic light.
