Interior Minister Sandor Pinter praised the “exemplary courage” displayed by the rescuers, authorities and civilians involved in the operations following Hungary’s worst civilian ship disaster.
Pinter said “every single detail” of the events leading up to the disaster needed to be uncovered.
The Hableány collided with a cruise ship and sank into the River Danube near Margit Bridge, Budapest, on May 29.
It had 33 South Korean tourists on board and a crew of two Hungarians.
Seven tourists were rescued from the water after the collision and the rest died.
