Budapest, March 10 (MTI) – The foreign ministry has requested information from its Romanian counterpart in connection with an entry ban Romania has imposed on the deputy leader of Hungary’s radical nationalist Jobbik party.

István Szávay was planning to visit Romania on Tuesday to attend ethnic Hungarian celebrations and hold residential forums in several towns, but he was informed at the border that he had been banned from entering the country for three years. Szávay and another Jobbik MP were already banned from Romania two years ago, for one year. At that time, Romania’s authorities said that the deputies were suspected of being members of extreme nationalist organisations impacting national security and public order in Romania.
