When Hungarian media tycoon Janos Fenyo was gunned down in his car by a dozen submachine gun bullets in downtown Budapest two decades ago it shocked the country and police never found who ordered the murder.
Now police have detained Tamas Gyarfas, an executive at world swimming’s governing body, on suspicion of ordering the murder, state news agency MTI said on Tuesday.
It was not possible to reach Gyarfas by telephone and there was no immediate comment from the International Swimming Federation (FINA), whose office was closed. Gyarfas is one of FINA’s eight-member executive, according to the body’s website.
Fenyo, who was killed at a stop light on Feb. 11, 1998, owned a portfolio of newspapers and magazines and a television network.
