The refugees in Europe from the Middle East have provoked the migration crisis, as a result of which the Hungarian authorities had to introduce a state of emergency in two countries near the border with Serbia. It was announced today by the Speakesperson for the Hungarian government Zoltan Kovacs, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Budapest Business Journal.
According to the rules of a state of emergency, the authorities are allowed to arrest and conduct summary judgement of asylum seekers. Consequently, illegal migrants can be deported to Serbia within several hours.
Also, the introduction of such a legal regime facilitates prosecution of Hungarians, who are suspected of helping asylum seekers in any illegal activity.
It should be noted that the announcement of a state of emergency is written in the new immigration laws, gaining legal force today.
It should be noted that refugees from Iraq and Syria were already spotted on the border with Ukraine. Thus, at the Luzhniki border guard unit of the Mukachevo detachment, border guards detained five illegal immigrants from Syria and one Iraqi citizen. Violators were spotted with the help of thermal imagers in the evening and at night.
