A far-right website in Hungary is offering money for information about protesters who called for the arrest of a suspected war criminal.

Kuruc.info proposed to pay 100,000 forints (£270) to anyone who provided information on a demonstration led by the European Union of Jewish Students outside the house of former Nazi police commander, Ladislaus Csizsik-Csataray, in Budapest last week.

The website said: "We will distribute 100,000 forints among those who send us the most useful information about the [participants]. Seventy-five thousand forints have been offered by our comrade Bela Varga who lives in America. Good hunting!"

About Jews, the website said: "They complain about various crimes when they are responsible to corrupt our country into communism and later into capitalism," the website declared. "They are responsible for the death of many thousand Hungarians, for the emigration of hundreds of thousands, for the killing of six million foetuses, for the selling of the country not to speak about the genocide in Palestine and the other crimes against humanity."

The European Union of Jewish Students has called upon the Hungarian government to find those who are involved with the website and to shut it down..

Last Thursday, Hungarian authorities arrested and charged the 97-year-old Csizsik-Csataray for his role in the deportation of 15,700 Jews to Auschwitz, following 15 years in which his whereabouts were unknown.
