On Tuesday’s programme, Bencsik described as “boorish” the reaction of businessman Sándor Demján to Speaker László Kövér’s proposal to move the statue of Imre Nagy from near Parliament. Demján largely paid for the erection of the statue in 1996.
Echo TV said Bencsik’s comment had violated personal rights and left the station vulnerable to legal and financial responsibility in a potential libel lawsuit. In view of that, the programme was not aired, a statement said.
Echo TV will launch a new public affairs show hosted by Magyar Hírlap journalist András Pindroch.
