Krisztián Tölgyesi was a former Hungarian national judo champion, who competed at the 2000 Sydney Olympics for Hungary. After his athletic career ended, he worked as a car mechanic, electing not to join the family business of making traditional Hungarian costumes. Tölgyesi came from a family of activists, as his mother, Magda, was a founding member of Lelkissmeret 88 (Conscience 88), an extremist right-wing organization. In October 2008, Krisztián Tölgyesi was arrested when police began investigating extremist groups in Budapest. His car was searched and found to have several bombs and home-made detonators. Tölgyesi confessed and stated that he made the bombs from instructions on the Internet.
