Jewish org to take further steps against Jobbik MP

Budapest, January 10 (MTI) - The Jewish organisation whose complaint against a radical nationalist lawmaker was rejected by the prosecution s investigations office said it would take further steps to halt hate speech.

Budapest, January 10 (MTI) - The Jewish organisation whose complaint against a radical nationalist lawmaker was rejected by the prosecution s investigations office said it would take further steps to halt hate speech.

The Unified Hungarian Jewish Congregation (EMIH) submitted the complaint to the prosecutor about Jobbik deputy Marton Gyongyosi, who called for the compilation of a list of Jewish ministers and MPs in a parliamentary address on November 27.

 

EMIH accused the deputy of incitement to hatred against a community.

 

Imre Keresztes, the head of the prosecution s investigations office, said the legal interpretation consistently applied by the Constitutional Court and other courts has shown that incitement to hatred against a community is committed "if a perpetrator acts in a way that results in … a direct threat of violence caused by incited emotions."

 

EMIH and the Action and Defence Foundation expressed disappointment over the prosecution s decision.

 

"The prosecutor has applied the rule ordering to punish those inciting hatred against a community contrary to the lawmakers original intention," they said.

 

The two organisations said that "consulting with Hungarian and international interest associations and with legal experts" it would make every possible effort to clarify the legal environment for punishing incitement to hatred.
