Hungary Banning "Totalitarian Symbols" as Public Disturbances

Kind of a totalitarian thing to do

|

The Government will amend the Penal Code in order to prohibit the sporting of totalitarian symbols also beyond 1 May.

A person who wears or displays totalitarian symbols in a way that is capable of upsetting public rest and order will be punishable in the future. Instances of violation of the human dignity of or the right to commemorate the victims of totalitarian regimes would also qualify as the disturbance of public rest and order.
