An ex-Lytham DJ has been found guilty of assaulting former Tory Health Secretary Matt Hancock on the London Underground.
After a short trial at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, the 62-year-old has today been found guilty of two counts of harassment after pursuing MP Hancock through Westminster and onto a Jubilee line train – accusing him of murdering millions of people through the Covid vaccine.
Tarjanyi, now of Leyland in Lancashire, shoulder-barged the former health secretary and shouted conspiracy theories on two separate occasions on January 19 and 24.
MP Hancock previously told a trial at Westminster Magistrates’ Court: ‘As a public figure, I can’t recall a time when I felt as intimidated as this.’
Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring said Tarjanyi deliberately intimidated and harassed the MP. Mr Goldspring said: ‘The defendant’s behaviour was oppressive. He deliberately intimidated and harassed Mr Hancock. The defendant did bump into Mr Hancock, deliberately so. He wanted a day in court to question Mr Hancock.’
Tarjanyi will be sentenced later.
