The suspects, also including Bendegúz Koppány Szarvas, a local representative of Momentum in Budapest, “prevented police from lawfully securing an institution … through violent conduct”, Imre Keresztes, the head of the Central Prosecutor’s Office of Investigations, told MTI.
The prosecutor has proposed the suspects should be handed suspended prison sentences in an expedited procedure, with the exception of one of them, who had earlier been charged with vandalism committed in a group.
That one suspect, whom Keresztes did not name, could face actual imprisonment. Under Hungarian law, assaulting officials or law enforcement personnel is punishable by 1 to 5 years imprisonment.
