MEDIA COUNCIL INVESTIGATING NIEDERMÜLLER REMARKS

 

The Media Council of Hungarian media authority NMHH has launched an investigation against commercial channel Magyar ATV over remarks made by Péter Niedermüller, mayor of Budapest’s 7th district, the authority said.
In a programme broadcast by ATV on Jan. 23, Niedermüller described “white, Christian heterosexuals” as “a scary formation”. The national investigations office (NNI) earlier launched an investigation concerning the remarks, on suspicion of “inciting hatred against a community” based on a criminal complaint by pro-government civil group CÖF and the associated CÖKA foundations.
