DK: Dobrev campaign event disrupted by man with pistol in Eger
Dobrev visited the city in northern Hungary on her campaign trail for the pre-elections, the selection of opposition candidates for prime minister and lawmakers for next spring’s general election.
In a statement, DK’s press office said that “[ruling] Fidesz sent armed provocateurs to attend and disrupt the outdoor campaign rally held by Klara Dobrev”.
“Since their attempt failed, one of them pulled a pistol and pointed it at a participant of the rally” attended by around 200 people, the party said in a statement.
Sandor Ronai, an MEP of DK, called the police who detained the “provocateurs”, it said.
The local police’s press officer told MTI that three men attending a political event reported to the police in advance got involved in a hassle with the event’s other participants. One of them pulled a pistol he legally owned but “did not use it”.
The 25-year-old man and the other two men were detained, Balint Soltesz said, adding that legal proceedings are under way.
