Foreign ministry summons Austrian Ambassador over “scandalous” Facebook post

The foreign ministry is summoning Austria's ambassador to Budapest over a "scandalous" Facebook post by the CEO of Austrian public broadcaster ORF, ministry spokesman Mate Paczolay said on Thursday.

In a post that has since been removed from his page, Karl Pachner said that Prime Minister Viktor Orban dying of a heart attack would be a “fair thing”, Paczolay said. The foreign ministry expects an explanation of the “coarse and deeply shocking statement” from the Austrian ambassador on Friday, he said.
