Noted Hungarian right-wing activist László Toroczkai could face trial within weeks for his role in a demonstration in March in which some 100 protesters lit torches outside the IMF building in Budapest.
Toroczkai, president of the Sixty-Four Counties Youth Movement, and his supporters were going to hand over a petition to the Hungarian representative of the International Monetary Fund but found the building empty. The protesters then lit torches of the sort used at football matches, left the building and walked to adjacent Szabadság Square, the site of violent riots in 2006 where Toroczkai encouraged his followers to continue their fight and resistance.
Toroczkai, who already faces criminal charges for breach of the peace in a different case, is accused of coercion related to the IMF demonstration. [origo.hu]
