Zala Office Takes The Law Into Its Own Hands
The government office has begun to take down Jobbik’s billboard messages in Zalaegerszeg, Jobbik politician György Szilágyi announced at an unscheduled press briefing on Tuesday.

He said the Zalaegerszeg government office has issued a resolution on the measure but Jobbik says it is unequivocally unlawful.

He added that the billboards act does not regulate what the owner of the giant billboard – at present Jobbik – can place on its own billboard space.

”The gangster government run by Viktor Orbán is attacking Jobbik with force”, he said, adding that the ”Orbán cabinet is using dictatorial means” against Jobbik.

“Hungary has stepped on the road to dictatorship. Viktor Orbán and his men are now out to smash freedom of speech after freedom of press,” Jobbik president Gábor Vona wrote on his official Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon.
