Hungary jails migrants for illegal border crossing


A Hungarian court sentenced 10 migrants up
to three years in jail for attempting to illegally cross the border into Serbia during riots
last year. It’s the first case of its kind to come to
trial under a law passed days before the incident. Nine of the men were sentenced to nearly a
year in jail, however they were released at the judge’s discretion due to time already
served. One of the group was kept behind bars after
receiving a three-year sentence for issuing instructions to the rioters through a loudspeaker. Of those convicted, three were disabled – one
of whom was rolled across the border in a wheelbarrow by a helper. On hearing his sentence would be quashed,
Fahdawy Ghazy said no man in his condition could have committed the crime he was accused
of. Fahdawy Ghazy, the wheelchair-bound man,
After attending the trial, a United Nations refugee agency spokesman expressed concern
that a country would criminalise people fleeing war zones. But Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban
has taken a tough line against migration, saying the EU risks losing other migration-weary
members that may follow Britain to the exit unless it does the same.

  1. There are things called Laws. If you break the law, you pay the penalty.

  2. You know the EU is fucked when they think enforcing the law is something strange

  3. Good work, Hungary. This should be the procedure all over Europe.

  4. Either it's legal or illegal. If it's illegal, then it must be enforced. If it's not going to be enforced, then make it legal.

  5. perfectly reasonable, and thats going to be the opinion of many normal people, what do we have laws, and borders for if they aren't protected.

  6. Silly UN, it is a crime to cross a border illegally in every country on the Earth, except EU, if you are a little whining cockroach.

  7. FUCK ISLAM!
    People of the world demand a unanimous condemnation against muslims and their bloody ideology.

  9. a country would criminalize people fleeing war zones?? that's what bothers you?? and the fact that those invaders racially attack and insult locals and disrespect their lifestyles is ok with you? that's not racism and hatred? stupid sellout media bitches, shitting in your own mouths

  10. I know this seems cruel, and I wouldn't say I like it either, but if Hungary doesn't think can hold them all and the people don't want them we won't do any good by letting in.

  11. If eu does not protect citizens of their countries, then governments of these countries will.

  12. Good work Hungary. All other EU countries should be following your example and JAILING illegal border-jumpers too. Bravo to Mr. Orban and Hungary!
