A doctor strongly recommended that Mihály should end the hunger strike after six days, Hitka said.

"We'll continue various initiatives to apply pressure until MPs' immunity is narrowed sufficiently and not only vis-a-vis immunity for misdemeanours that has been passed to its second reading in parliament," added Hitka.
