The Budapest police have discovered threads linking the bomb outrage at Chongrad with the Alfoeld Brigade which is a union of all secret organizations in Hungary.

Johann Saggi, who had been arrested for complicity in the Chongrad affair, testified before the Judge that the Alfoeld Brigade had planned a revolution with the purpose of establishing a dictatorship under Ivan Hedjas, leader of the awakening Magyars.
