HírTV turns to election committee

Private TV channel HírTV has turned to the election committee because of what it called the Tasó scandal. HírTV reported on Monday that its crew had been ousted unlawfully from Fidesz MP László Tasó’s rally on Sunday evening. A billboard had promoted the political rally in Nyíracsád.

Tasó, a state secretary, said in response on Facebook that the event was not public. HírTV maintains the politician’s call on March 23 for the rally did not include that detail.

At the rally, Tasó took the matter into his own hands to ensure that the HírTV crew would not record the rally. “Let’s remove them from here, let’s help … Get outta here!” he said.

The HírTV reporter has filed a complaint with the police.
