Orbán and Farage’s right-wing party takes place in Brussels after big legal victory – POLITICO

The incident sparked widespread outrage, with European leaders including Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo and Orbán condemning the police intervention.

Conference organizers challenged the mayor’s decision to keep the show on the road in court, and the Council of State issued a ruling Tuesday evening, overturning the mayor’s order.

The court ruled that in the event of a risk of disruption of public order, the authorities must take measures “to curb demonstrations on public roads rather than prohibiting a private meeting” and that the government “must at least make an effort to protect those who wish to exercise their constitutional right to assembly.

Because there was a “medium” threat to the participants, there was no need for “disproportionate effort by law enforcement,” the court said.

Emir Kir, mayor of Saint-Josse-ten-Noode where Claridge is located, defended his decision to ask for the conference to be stopped.

“Being mayor means being a guarantor of public safety,” said on social media. “My lack of sympathy for those who preach hatred is assumed but it is the maintenance of public order which motivated this ban.”
