Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said a temporary private passport was issued to Tóásó so that he could travel to Hungary.

The foreign minister reminded that the earlier plan was that Tóásó and his Bolivian family members can travel to Hungary together. But this has changed due to the known facts. Because Hungary has no embassy in Bolivia, Hungary has an agreement with the Spanish embassy to issue visa to Tóásó's Bolivian family member so that they can travel to Hungary as soon as possible.

Fighting back tears Tóásó told journalists that he had nothing to do with terrorism. He went to Bolivia at the invitation of Eduardo Rózsa Flores to shoot a film and to maintain the film crew's website. He also said he wasn't resentful towards Eduardo Rózsa Flores who was killed with two of his associates - Hungarian national, Árpád Magyarosi and an Irish citizen, Michael Martin Dwyer - in a Santa Cruz hotel by Bolivian security forces in a fake anti-terrorist operation that served political purposes.

Tóásó said the terrorism case against them has been created as part of a Bolivian political chess game. He also said he would contact the family members of his murdered associates.
