Two arrested under suspicion of preparing to ‘violently alter constitutional order’
Authorities have arrested the leaders of a group called the Responsible National Government of Hungarians, who are suspected of having prepared to "alter country's constitutional order using violence" and of murdering politicians, the Budapest Municipal Court said on Thursday.
The two men are suspected of having set up the organisation where one of them was “vested with judicial powers” and the other tasked with organising the executive power, the statement said. At group meetings and on the internet, they called for the murder of politicians, judges and public figures, the court said.
The court ordered the men’s detention until October 29. The men have also been accused of crimes against the state, the investigative branch of the Prosecutor’s Office said.
