Anti-SZFE Assailant Gets Five Years by Hungarian Court
The Capital Court issued a five-year prison sentence to a man who attacked a woman with a knife for wearing a FreeSZFE mask declaring solidarity with students and former instructors at the University of Theatre and Motion Picture Arts.

The incident occurred on a bus in Csepel, Budapest’s 21st District, on February 25.

The convicted man became agitated upon spotting the mask and began to threaten the woman before stabbing her in the face with a knife with a blade eight centimetres long. He said he was trying to cut her mask off.

The man then got off the bus at the next stop and fled the scene.
