Romania bans four Hungarian extremists from entering country

The Romanian government named on March 17 four Hungarian far-right militants that they banned from entering the country after violent protests last week that authorities in Bucharest suspects Magyar extremists were behind.

The four Hungarians are Tyrityan Zsolt, Zagyva Gyorgy Gyula, Szavay Istvan and Mikola Bela. Zsolt is a member of the so-called “Outlaws’ Army”, Gyula is a member of Jobbik, the far-right Hungarian parliamentary party, Istvan, also a Jobbik member and Hungarian lawmaker, while Bela is a member of the “New Magyar Guard” organisation.

“As concerns these persons, we have solid proof they belong to structures involved in nationalist-extremist activities which raise risks to the public order and national security of Romania,” Monica Dajbog, interior ministry spokesperson, told a news conference on the evening of March 17.
