Will Prosecutor Get Dream Ban?

Anti-Gay Hungarians Draw Judicial Fire

Hungary’s recently founded neo-Nazi group may have to close up hateful shop. Budapest’s prosecutor filed a request to ban Magyar Garda, which regularly rails against gays, Jews and Roma.

A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office said the group was guilty of generating fear among minority groups, specifically the Roma, who make up 5% of the Hungarian population.

“Freedom of association cannot get in the way of another’s rights or freedom,” he said.

Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany once described the politically-connected group as “the disgrace of Hungary and Hungarian democracy”. And the rest of humanity.
