The representatives of the NATO headquarters affirmed that Shandor Laborch, the director of the national security service of Hungary, was appointed the chairman of the NATO Intelligence Committee. He had graduated from the K.G.B. high school in Moscow.
The Committee is a coordinating body and its key task is the exchange of the intelligence information between the allies within NATO and its analysis. The heads of the national intelligence services preside over in the committee on the basis of the daily rotation and the turn was for Hungary in January.
The Office of the Prime Minister of Hungary said that none of the sides opposed the candidature of Laborch.
49 year-old brigadier general became the director of the national security service of Hungary in December 2007.
Until 2002, when socialists won the parliamentary elections and Ferernce Durchan, the former komsomol and the current millionaire headed the government, none of the Hungarian civil servants who had worked in Moscow more than a year could be promoted to a higher position than the department head of the ministry.
