Italy Salis requests to Hungary useless says Budapest

Italy Salis requests to Hungary useless says Budapest

Hungarian govt 'has no control over courts'

ROME, 02 April 2024, 17:10

ANSA English Desk



Requests from Italy to the Hungarian government to intervene in the case of Ilaris Salis, a 39-year-old Italian antifascist on trial in Budapest for allegedly attacking two neoNazis last year, would be in vain because the Hungarian government, "as in any other modern democracy, has no control over the courts," a spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said on X Tuesday.
    Salis, an elementary school teacher from Monza near Milan, has been repeatedly led into court on a chain with her hands and ankles cuffed, causing an outcry in Italy.
    A Budapest court last week rejected a plea to have her moved to house arrest in the Hungarian capital, as a hopeful prelude to being moved to house arrest in Italy.
    Salis is on trial for attempted murder for allegedly being part of a German-led hammer gang that targeted neoNazis on the latters' annual celebration of a heroic Nazi WWII regiment in February last year.
    The men she allegedly attacked suffered minor injuries which they did not report t the police.
    Kovacs said in his X post: "We have to make it clear that no one, no extreme left-wing group, should see Hungary as some kind of boxing ring where they come and plan to beat someone to death.
    "And no, no direct request from the Italian government (or any major media outlet) to the Hungarian government will make it easier to defend Salis's case, because the government, as in any other modern democracy, has no control over the courts".
    Hungary has suffered repeated European reprimands over the rule of law there.
