Hungarian legal practice: it is not Nazi that seems to be

We reported on 21 November 20101 how the statue of Mihály Károlyi, the first president of a Hungarian republic was outraged on 16 November by the parliamentary neo-fascist party Jobbik. Probably the most repellent element of this action was putting a kippah to the head of the statue, an obvious incitement against Jewish people.

The Hungarian Anti-Fascist League submitted immediately a plaint to the Main Prosecutor's Office in Budapest asking them to undertake appropriate measures against this and similar actions. The final reply of the Prosecutor after a lengthy procedure including an appeal has now arrived. According to it, neither a crime case nor an actual grievance of interest could be established and, therefore, the Prosecutor saw no reason to act.
