Hungary Starts Probe Against Banks on Foreign Loans, Nemzet Says
The Hungarian prosecutor’s office started an investigation into domestic commercial lenders over foreign-currency loans, Magyar Nemzet reported, citing the person who requested the probe.
The investigation, involving all domestic banks, is focused on possible tax evasion, the Budapest-based newspaper said, citing Arpad Kasler, head of a lobby group representing borrowers.
Kasler expects class action cases against individual banks in the future, according to Nemzet.
