The story began after ÓVÁS! Association started to protest against the demolition of Király Street 40, an old building in the historical Jewish area in the 7. District designed by József Hild. Not to mention that the building is also a national monument.
The protests were actually successful since the demolition stopped after the prosecutor’s office had raised a protest finally against the demolition.
'This is not a case of those protecting the city but the case of authorities being totally powerless and incapable since the building still having been demolished despite the warning' – Marinov referred to the case in a press conference.
For his opinion quoted above the 7. District sued Marinov for damaging the Local Government’s reputation.
On 30 Nov, 2006 the court made a judgment stating that the case was not legally grounded – so the complaint was dismissed.
