7/12/2009- The Supreme Court on Thursday approved its binding court ruling that far-right activist György Budaházy should perform 30 days of community service for his role in the Elisabeth Bridge blockade of 2002. Budaházy entered the court in handcuffs, as he currently also faces charges of attempted murder and terrorism, and shouted “freedom” to a group of sympathisers outside. Hundreds of police officers secured the area with dogs. No incidents occurred. Judge Annamária Schafer tolerated Budaházy’s sympathisers jeering and proclaiming “it’s a scandal” when she issued her verdict. Jobbik MEP Krisztina Morvai was present and the court allowed her to speak with Budaházy for 20 minutes. In his final speech Budaházy claimed the trail had been staged and implied that it had been protracted due to political factors. He will now take his case to the European Court of Human Rights.
