Criticized for homophobia! Victor Orban cancels trip to Munich to watch Germany-Hungary match
The Prime Minister of Hungary, Victor Orban has canceled his planned trip to Munich where he would follow the confrontation between the national team of his country and Germany.
The cause has been the criticism that Germany has leveled at its government’s decision to outlaw gay education among pupils and students. Initially, the German state had planned to alum the "Allianz Arena" with rainbow lights, a symbol of the LGBT community, an act that was banned by UEFA because of the political message.
As a result, German authorities will place 10,000 rainbow flags in the stadium before the match with Hungary to signal the protest against the Orban government. Precisely in response to this German provocation and open involvement of a sporting event in politics, Orban has refused to go to the stadium.
Recall that a few days ago the captain and guard of the German gate was taken under investigation by UEFA after his captain's armband in the match against Portugal carried the LGBT flag, which would be in violation of sports rules that prohibit political messages on the playing field.
