Budapest (MTI) – The pro-government Civil Unity Forum (COF) has accused the opposition weekly Magyar Narancs of “violating the ethics of freedom of speech” with its most recent cover page depicting Prime Minister Viktor Orban with a Hitler mustache made of barbed wire.

COF founder Laszlo Csizmadia noted at a press conference on Friday that an opinion piece published in the paper described the prime minister as “insane”.

“It’s a shame that the neoliberal paper overstepped the ethical and legal boundaries of the freedoms of expression and the press and uses the tools of professional barbarism,” Csizmadia said. He referred to the move by Magyar Narancs as “an act of desperation by a paper with minimal readership”.
