Jobbik starts re-pasting billboards

Jobbik has started to re-paste its anti-Fidesz ads on its billboards in Eger, after government personnel removed them on Friday under police escort.

Ads portraying Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, his advisor Árpád Habony, Felcsút mayor Lõrincz Mészáros and Cabinet Office Minister Antal Rogán as gangsters appeared on billboards last week. The government ordered them removed, claiming that they are illegal.

Jobbik spokesman Ádám Mirkóczki that the billboards are legal.

Hungary is not North Korea, even if Viktor Orbán wants it to be, he added.
