He said that he was a terrorist and shouted “Allahu Akbar”.
Based on the indictment of the public prosecutor’s office of the Tatabánya district, the drunk Hungarian man was threatening with causing a situation of public danger. He said that he was a terrorist and added that he would demolish the building of the Hungarian National Assembly.
The incident happened in June and, according to the prosecutor’s office, the man got on an Intercity train going to Budapest in Sopron and tried to sit down in a cabin, but there were no free seats left. Therefore, he started to shout “Allahu Akbar”, said he was a terrorist and added that he would demolish the Hungarian parliament.
One of the individuals travelling in the same cabin called the police so officers were already waiting for the threatener in the Eastern Railway Station of Budapest. The public prosecutor requested a fine after the man, who otherwise has a clean record,
admitted the crime.
As we reported before, Hungarian prosecutors last week said they had charged a Syrian national alleged to have been a member of the Islamic State terrorist organisation with carrying out acts of terrorism and crimes against humanity. The 27-year-old man, Hassan F., is alleged to have commanded an armed group of the Islamic State and was arrested in Hungary in March this year and now faces a sentence of life in prison.
According to the indictment, the man ordered multiple executions in his homeland in May 2015. The executions
included the public beheading of the local imam
and at least 25 people, including women and children in the town. Hassan F. is also suspected of having personally participated in the execution of the imam and at least another two people. He also allegedly shot another person, Ibolya said in a statement.
HERE we wrote that the Christchurch (New-Zealand) attacker, Brenton Tarrant has been to Hungary and the nearby countries before. Therefore, the Hungarian Counter Terrorism Centre decided to cooperate with the authorities of New Zealand and other countries to investigate Tarrant’s past and his actions in Hungary.
Tarrant visited Hungary in November
and arrived from the Bulgarian capital city, but he also stopped in Bucharest on his way. Furthermore, he has been to Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia. It is unknown what his intentions and actions were in Hungary.
Brenton Tarrant knew a lot about Hungary because it is rare that someone from New Zealand would be aware of who János Hunyadi and Mihály Szilágyi were.
