The lieutenant, István Kurta (1951–), was one of the state security photographers of the demonstrations in 1989 in Budapest. He was hired by the political police in 1985. Initially, he worked as a graphologist. In 1987, he was advanced as an operative officer. He had experiences in hidden, camouflaged photo taking. We know little about his career in the Ministry of Interior. His personal folder was not saved in the Historical Archive. He may have remained in the staff of the Ministry after the abolishment of the state security department, or he may have been sent to some secret service successor organization after the political change.
