Csaba Ferenc Varga, a captain in the local police, said the organisations participating in the protest announced the event in line with the law, i.e. 72 hours in advance. "That is why we prepared ourselves to monitor the protest. We are responsible mainly for security and traffic flow.”

"The town of Esztergom condemns these protests … Štúrovo is its partner town and cross-border cooperation between these two towns is very intensive. Our joint goal is preservation of good neighbourhood relations," said a spokesman for the municipality of Esztergom, István Takács. SITA
