The Staff Captain, Judge of the Seat of Order of Vitéz, Prof. Dr. Vitéz Nob. László T. Kóczy de Borgó et Nagysikárló on December 2, 2023, he expressed his thoughts on a startling case:
On June 2, 2023, during the session of the Seat of Vitéz in Stockholm, a resolution was approved, necessitated by the fact that there were confreres, who rejecting the spirit of camaraderie, made unfounded and derogatory statements about each other.
“Those, who are unsatisfied with their own order roles and positions, […] have become supporters of associations and organizations calling themselves ‘Vitézi Rend’, have collaborated with unrecognized ‘knightly orders’ and with pagan organizations mocking Christianity.” – he wrote.
The resolution of the Seat is as follows: “Anyone who, as an invested vitéz, uses any form of offensive, derogatory, negative, unfounded criticism against their comrade, or makes expressions, that endangers the unity of the Order, shall be relieved of their vitéz oath with immediate effect, and their name shall be removed from the registry.”
This resolution hopefully prompts those who have expressed criticism or slander against a fellow confrere in the past to reflect on their expressions and take actions to ensure that the wounds caused heal as quickly as possible.
