Prosecutors Ask for Community Service for Man Who Attacked Momentum Politicians

The Prosecutor’s Office for Budapest Districts II and III charged a 48-year-old man with disturbing the peace after he attacked several opposition Momentum politicians in October 2021.

The man attacked, among others, then-Momentum President András Fekete-Győr and kicked over a microphone stand at a party press conference. No one was physically injured in the attack. A statement released by prosecutors wrote that the accused attacker had disturbed the press conference, held in Budapest’s District II, with yelling and loud cursing.

The prosecution requested a substantive ruling in the case without requiring a trial, and asked the court to sentence the man to community service. [Telex]
