A man responsible for allegedly staging an anti-vaccine protest outside health secretary’s home, has been charged.

In a video footage, posted online, shows someone delivering a letter with an anti-Covid vaccine message outside Sajid Javid’s London address in Fulham. The man addresses the camera, claiming the letter puts the health secretary “personally on notice” for “harming” the people of Britain with vaccines.

Geza Tarjanyi, 60, from Leyland, Lancashire, was arrested in Fulham on Monday (3), the Metropolitan Police said. He is due to appear at Isleworth Crown Court next month.

The Scotland Yard says Tarjanyi, of Boundary Street, was due to appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court for having an article with intent to destroy or damage property.

It happened after the Javid said he was “appalled” by the “vile behaviour” of anti-vaccine protesters who entered a test and trace centre in Meilton Keynes on 29 December.

The health secretary on the same day said that spreading lies about vaccines was “something that is costing lives”.

During a visit to a vaccination centre in Lambeth, south London, he was quoted as saying: “We are working very hard across government, particularly the Home Office and the police are doing everything they can to tackle anti-vax protesters that are breaking the law.”
