Hungary’s parliament has banned a camerawoman from working on the premises after she insulted a lawmaker during an interview.
Parliament press chief Zoltan Szilagyi said Thursday in a statement that Petra Laszlo’s ban would be enforced for the rest of the current legislative period, which ends in mid-December.
In January, Laszlo was sentenced to three years’ probation for disorderly conduct after she was filmed kicking and trying to trip migrants on the border with Serbia in 2015.
Laszlo, who works for a pro-government website, could be seen on video arguing Monday with Gyorgy Szilagyi from the far-right Jobbik party.
Szilagyi said he did not want to talk to reporters from pestisracok.hu because he considered them government “propagandists.”
During the 2015 incident, Laszlo was working for N1TV, which is close to Jobbik.
