Andrea Markó, former state secretary at the finance ministry, and Zsolt F, an appraiser, were both acquitted of charges of document fraud. Bálint V, a lawyer, was given a fine of 600,000 forints (EUR 1,900) for having forged public documents.
The case goes back to the summer of 2008 when the Socialist-led government, represented by MNV, signed a controversial land-swap contract with Israeli-Hungarian businessman Joav Blum.
Former Prime Minister Ference Gyurcsány was also investigated for suspected abuse of office in the deal, a charge that was later dropped.
