Hungarian PM recollects at the grave of Romanian who died in Izsak

The Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, visited Satu Mare at the end of last week to recollect and lay a white rose at the grave of the Romanian who dies in Izsak (Hungary) a month ago after alleged Police violence. MTI says a video was posted on the PM’s Facebook page showing Viktor Orban depositing a white rose tied with a ribbon in the Hungarian national colours at the grave of Jozsef Bara in Satu Mare.  On April 11, MTI quoted Prosecution spokesman Geza Fazekas as saying that a man, Romanian citizen residing in Hungary, had died from injuries sustained while being beaten by two Police officers in Izsak, South-East Hungary and that the ambulance medics called were unable to resuscitate him.

The 47-year old had been incarcerated at Orgovany, on suspicion of having stolen a chainsaw, according to MTI. Hungarian Police head Karoly Papp declared himself ‘consternated’ and called the incident ‘unacceptable, impermissible and intolerable’, however refusing to disclose any additional details, just adding that a criminal investigation was in progress. At the time, Papp said the two suspects had been dismissed and remanded in custody for 30 days and that their local superiors had been suspended. Afterwards, the Romanian Foreign Ministry instructed the Romanian Embassy in Budapest and the Romanian consular offices in Hungary to immediately demand Hungarian authorities to offer information on the investigation into the death of the Romanian citizen in Izsak.
