The Silencing of the NPI in Budapest: Update

Addendum, 10/5, from a correspondent:

Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute expects to be deported from Hungary on Monday morning after being kept in police detention more than 48 hours after being arrested at a gathering of nationalists, traditionalists and identitarians at a bar Budapest on Friday evening. He is still in detention though police have confirmed they are not investigating any public order or travel documents offence.
The Hungarian government’s determination to disrupt  a legal gathering of the  NPI’s European congress marks a worrying
escalation in state oppression of dissident right meetings. What has caused more concern is that it seems to have been organised with the co-operation of the governments of  France and Russia, both of which have either asked speakers not to attend or disrupted travel arrangements.
