Fidesz is initiating an amendment to the criminal code in response to the Baja video case, Fidesz caucus leader Antal Rogán told fellow MPs in Parliament on Monday.
Rogán said a change in law is needed because the case of falsifying a piece of evidence has undermined the functioning of democratic institutions.
Fidesz wants to ensure that those who produce libellous fake photographs or video recordings should be sent to prison for between one and three years, he added.
He who does not support such an unequivocal bill, is up to something, he asserted.
Parliament is expected to debate the amendment motion in November and it could enter into force in December.
The Socialists said amending the criminal code merely serves Fidesz’s communication goals and to divert public attention, adding that they will scrutinise the amendment.
