BUDAPEST (AFP) - Fifty-one Hungarian farmers have been fined for keeping workers, mainly Romanian gypsies, in virtual slavery near the southern town of Mako. A total of 205 illegal workers from Romania toiled for a pittance in the villages of Magyarcsanad, Apatfalva and Kiszombor, doing 'work no Hungarian would be ready to do', the Magyar Nemzet newspaper said.
