PM EXPRESSES SORROW OVER REFORMED CHURCH STUDENT HALLS FIRE

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán expressed his sorrow over Wednesday night’s fire in which the upper stories of the Ráday College in central Budapest burnt down and a person died, in a letter to Bishop István Szabó. In his letter, Orbán offered help to the Reformed Church to restore the damaged building. The student halls, home to 130 students, were only partially occupied at the time of the fire, because many of the students are away preparing for their upcoming examinations, the church said in a statement. All others have been temporarily rehoused by the district municipality and the Lutheran Church, the statement added.
