Police remove protesters against Liget Project
Budapest (MTI) – The police have put an end to an ongoing protest against a major construction project in Budapest’s City Park.
The police confirmed to MTI on Friday that they had had the protesters’ tents removed, and “restored order” at the project site. Three people disturbing construction work have been prosecuted for rowdy behaviour, while two others have been reported for misdemeanour, the police said on its website.
Environmentalists have been protesting against the Liget Project, a scheme of building a new museum complex, which they see as a harmful transformation of the popular public park next to Heroes’ Square.
