According to the charges, Fekete-Győr acted as an accomplice of Koppány Bendegúz Szarvas on Dec 13, 2018, when they threw smoke bombs at police during a demonstration in Kossuth Square.
The court sentenced Fekete-Győr to 1 year in prison, suspended for 2 years. The court saw Fekete-Győr’s clean record, as well as the fact that he had acted as an accomplice, as mitigating circumstances, spokesman József Tamás Szabó said.
Szarvas, the primary defendant, had been accused of assaulting officers on two consecutive days, Dec 12 and 13, and sentenced to 2 years in prison, suspended for 3 years. Fekete-Győr has appealed the sentence.
The primary defendant and the prosecution are mulling the same, and so the procedure is set to continue at the third-instance court, Szabó said.
