Policemen kept away from demonstration

Policemen cannot attend the trade unions’ planned and previously announced demonstration called the ”clown revolution” today, as all members of staff have to work on Thursday at the time of the demonstration, online news portal Index reported.

The National Police Department (ORFK) said that its entire staff would be needed on Thursday to manage public safety controls with increased efficiency and so policemen are forbidden to keep their mobile phones with them during the day.

The Independent Police Trade Union (FKSz) called the step an "insidious arrangement” aiming to hold the demonstration back. Firefighters and policemen planned to demonstration to raise their voices against a government decision abolishing early retirement.
