JERUSALEM -The decision today  by the Budapest Investigative Prosecutors to indict Laszlo Csatary , the former senior police officer and ghetto commandant in Kosice , demonstrates that even after 70 years, justice can be attained and dignity can be restored.

This indictment also sends a significant educational message to the younger generation in Hungary, as the country struggles with its history during World War II.

Israel welcomes the decision and hopes that the Hungarian authorities will do their utmost   to expedite the trial in view of the defendant's advanced age.
