Hungary Bank Group Still to Decide on Turning to EU on Loan Plan

September 30, 2011

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- The Hungarian Banking Association has not yet reached a decision whether to turn to the European Union or the Europan Court of Justice over a government plan on the repayment of foreign-currency mortgages at below-market rates, Mihaly Patai, head of the lobby group said.

“Some individual banks are considering turning to the EU, the association has yet to reach a decision on this,” Patai said at a conference in Budapest today. The group will attack the plan at the Hungarian Constitutional Court, Patai, who is also the chief executive officer of UniCredit Hungary, said.
