Hungary’s ambassador to the Netherlands protested after a radio host asked his guest whether she would spit Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban in the face.
According to Magyarnieuws, Kocsis wants the Dutch public broadcaster (NPO) to make steps against Eric Smit, who was the host at the ‘Dr Kelder en Co’ programme. “This is rude and shocking,” Kocsis said. In the programme, Smit was talking to Dutch green politician Judith Sargentini, who is the MEP responsible for the report on the situation in Hungary. She didn’t react to Smit’s provocative question.
Reacting to Kocsis’s criticism, the host said there’s freedom of speech in the Netherlands. The channel’s spokesman said the programme in question is often provocative, but they expect the participants to respect others. He said they will discuss it among each other.
