The mayor of Csorna (Győr-Moson-Sopron County) received threatening calls after expressing his aversion to Advent crosses erected in public places, writes kisalfold.hu.
First, he rejected a request from a private individual to erect a cross on a square in the town, then, while accepting another request by Jobbik to hold a political event in the town, György Turi specified that after the event, any crosses erected at the location have to be removed. Following this, his phone number was posted on extreme-right portal kuruc.info.
“The first calls arrived early morning, I had no idea what they were talking about,” Turi told kisalfold.hu. The mayor, who did not want to repeat any phrases used by callers to describe him, has ordered Jobbik to make kuruc.info publish a correction to the story or face a lawsuit.
