Country: Hungary

Date of incident: December 31, 2023

On New Year's Eve a newly restored statue of Mary has been vandalised for the second time in Dunavecse, Hungary. Unknown perpetrators smashed the head of the statue and trampled its pieces.

The statue, which had been renovated due to the previous vandalism attack, was supposed to be reconsecrated on January 1. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Dunavecse announced that the consecration would be postponed and a candlelight mass was held instead.
