An ex-Lytham DJ has been charged with assaulting former Tory Health Secretary Matt Hancock on the London Underground. Following an incident reported yesterday by Lytham St. Anne’s News, 61-year-old Geza Tarjanyi will appear in court in February charged with common assault and two public order offences. In their statement, British Transport Police added that Tarjanyi has now been released on bail.
The former Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, who controversially appeared on the most recent series of the popular reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, is understood to have been unhurt after the alleged attack on the morning of Tuesday 24th January which began at Westminster Tube Station before continuing on a Tube train.
This is not the first time Tarjanyi has been involved with a Tory Heath Secretary. In November last year, Tarjanyi was cleared of intending to cause criminal damage to the then Health Secretary Sajid Javid’s south-west London home. The Isleworth Crown Court heard that Tarjanyi travelled from Lancashire to stage a protest against the coronavirus vaccine rollout. The Prosecution argued that Tarjanyi planned to damage Sajid Javid’s home in Fulham with glue spray and posters. The Prosecution barrister Archie Mackay said Mr Tarjanyi was carrying the items to make sure he was arrested – and he was prepared to stick the posters onto the Javids’ home. Tarjanyi denied the charges. The jury at Isleworth Crown Court found Tarjanyi not guilty after a two-day trial, during which he argued the spray adhesive and posters he had with him did not mean he was going to use them.
