Budapest, July 23 (MTI) – Police removed 17 activists of a civil movement representing troubled forex mortgage holders who blocked a section of a street in central Budapest in a banned sit-down demonstration on Thursday morning, the police said on its website.

The movement originally asked permission from the police to stage a demonstration with about 100-400 participants to demand the suspension of foreclosures and compensation for unfair forex debt repayment conditions.

The police decided to ban the protest, arguing that it would block traffic.

The movement appealed to the municipal labour court which however upheld the police decision.
