Demonstrators call for president s resignation on plagiarism allegations

Budapest, January 21 (MTI) - Several hundred demonstrators on Saturday called for the resignation of President Pal Schmitt, alleging he plagiarised his doctoral thesis and is thus unfit for office.

Budapest, January 21 (MTI) - Several hundred demonstrators on Saturday called for the resignation of President Pal Schmitt, alleging he plagiarised his doctoral thesis and is thus unfit for office.

The Friends of the Republic of Hungary Facebook group organised the demonstration on a square near Schmitt s official residence in the Buda Castle.

 

Representatives of civil organisations speaking before the crowd, which filled about half of the square, called for Schmitt to dissolve parliament and resign.

 

Recent press reports have resulted in speculation that Schmitt s doctoral thesis, written during his studies at the Budapest Sports University (TE) in 1992, could have been plagiarised from a French text. Schmitt has dismissed the speculation.
