Struggling news website back again

The Szabad Pécs news website has resumed operations after a week, following a plea for financial support.

The website suspended operations a week ago, then received Ft 1.5 million in 48 hours and Ft 2 million in the past week.

The number of regular contributors rose to 150-200 from 50 earlier.

Szabad Pécs received four donations of at least Ft 100,000 and one donor transferred hundreds of thousands of forints.

A foundation linked to independent MP Ákos Hadházy was one of the big contributors, transferring Ft 100,000 for the operation and relaunch of the website.

The site’s editors said another foundation had also approached them.
