The Democratic Coalition (DK) will is raising charges in connection with “government brutality”, saying a security guard hit a party activist, Gergő Varga, at Sunday’s demonstration during the prime minister’s state-of-the-nation address. During the demonstration at Budapest’s Várkert Bazár, activists placed sheets of paper reading “Thief” and other slurs on the cordon, Varga said. One of the security guards lashed out at him, he said.
