Hungarian Official Fired After Remarks Surface Calling Jews ‘Nefarious, Dirty Folk’ (VIDEO)
Former Hungarian Member of Parliament Imre Sisák was fired from his position as department head at the Nógrád county government bureau after a video surfaced of him calling Jews a “nefarious, dirty folk,” Hungary Today reported on Tuesday.
The offending video, posted on YouTube in late April, is believed to have been recorded between 2006 and 2010 when Sisák was mayor of Pásztó in northern Hungary. According to the report, his comments are thought to have been made in reference to László Krämer, a late member of the town council for the Hungarian Socialist Party.
Sisák’s dismissal went into immediate effect upon orders from the Prime Minister’s Office, Hungary Today said. Sisák had served as a department head at the Nógrád county government bureau since a failed 2014 bid to be reelected as mayor of Pásztó.
