Subject: Robbed genocide victims without compensation, by the hungarian communist regime
Dated: Canada, 16.08.2012
Dear Eleni Tsakopoulos Kounalakis!
My name is János Csokai. I am a hungarian-canadian citizen, but my son, Attila Csokai and his family is US citizen.
I want to report a serious human rights and international agreement violation committed by the Hungarian government.
Restitution of assets and compensate for the loss.
The communist regime took our family properties, business, and other assets without compensation in 1952 Nyíradony and the Guthi forest, Hungary. The family was tortured and partially destroyed. Part of my family is Holocaust survivor.
In 1981, I left Hungary. The Hungarian communist regime took my home - Budapest, Táltos u. 6 fszt. 5 - assets, business and a grill restaurant etc... without any kind of compensation and restitution.
I reported this crime many times to the Minister of Justice, namely Tibor Navracsis, but no response.
We can not turn to the Hungarian Court, because the Restitution Law not exist yet.
Please report this matter to the US Congress and other Authorities.
Please protect US citizen victims!
Sincerely: Janos Csokai

Comments/Commentaires : Dear Mr. Stephen Harper!
My name is Janos Csokai. I am a canadian-hungarian citizen. The Hungarian regime in 1952 and in 1981 robbed my whole family. Took our houses, businesses, assets in Hungary without restitution or compensation. Even today the EU-member Hungarian Regime did not introduce the Restitution law wich is in effect in other EU-member ex-communist countries. The Hungarian Regime uses our assets for financial gains, which they benefit from. They neglect the Human Rights Code and the commitment to International Agreements. The Hungarian Regime tortured and destroyed part of my family. Part of my family is Holocaust survivor. Our family is the uncompensated communist genocide victim of the Hungarian Government. Dear Mr. Prime Minister! We not able to turn to the Hungarian Court, because of the Restitution Law still not exist in Hungary. Genocide is continue today, because we are not able to return to our houses and businesses. The assets are gone. Please help in this subject matter. We hope that, the canadians will never have the same experience, that happened with our family.
Sincerly: Janos Csokai

FOR YOUR INFORMATION!
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
We would like to ask you to support us to finish one of the most atrocious chapters of modern history.
The Czech president Vaclav Klaus will only sign the Lisbon Treaty under his conditions, which means legalizing the illegality, committed by the Czechoslovakian government after World War 2 for all times. Robert Fico, president of Slovakia, has joined this ultimatum.
The Benes Decrees are part of these unjust measures, the basis for the expulsion of several hundred thousands of Hungarians, Sudeten- and Carpathian (Karpaten) Germans, the confiscation of their possessions and their home country. Many thousands have lost their lives during this ethnic cleaning.
The Benes Decrees trampled on basic human rights, a situation fatal till today.
As the Czech Republic and Slovakia consider these Decrees as unimpeachable, their governments refuse any kind of restitution. The Slovakian government even aggravated the anti-Hungarian language law on 1 September 2009.
A European Union, submitting to the threats of Vaclav Klaus and Robert Fico, will lose its trustworthiness with the protection of the very basic human rights and interests of its citizens. The democratic European Union cannot accept and legalize any decrees, which allow Governments to exercise any kind of discrimination to members of other ethnic groups.

„The so-called Hungarian Czechoslovakian population exchange”
As generally known, a considerable number, several hundred thousand German and Hungarian members of the population (who had lived together peacefully in the Carpathian basin for centuries) were deported or forced to flee and were dispossessed of their properties after the Communist occupation. Their cruel fate was similar to those of the Germans in the Sudetenland. Those who stayed in Hungary (both civilians and clerics) were sent to the Gulags, deported within Hungary and were forced into inhumane conditions in addition to complete dispossession of their properties. These people who are deeply hurt in their human and citizen rights have not yet not received just legal compensation after the political changes 17 years ago. Therefore the interest groups, organizations and foundations of the Hungarian dispossessed decided that they would call for the need to restore justice and legality. With the organization of this conference they wish to draw the attention of Europe and the World to this unsustainable situation.
