A Budapest police statement Wednesday said nine marches were banned because the law prohibits gatherings that violate other people's rights and freedoms, the Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
Hungarian national-socialist groups were planning to organize marches Saturday to commemorate Nazi leader Rudolf Hess, Hitler's deputy during World War II.
Hungary's Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai and President Laszlo Solyom have opposed the planned marches, saying neo-Nazi gatherings are not welcome in Hungary, MTI said.
Hess died on Aug. 17, 1987, in Spandau Prison, Berlin.
