Controversial law criminalizes refugees in Hungary

Filed under: ,

Smugglers are inducing refugees to illegally sneak into European countries but, under Hungary’s new law, it’s resulting in hundreds of people getting arrested. This new law may be contradicting the 1951 Geneva UN convention that affirms refugees are free from prosecution when entering a state in good faith, even if illegally. In the meanwhile, Hungary is extending its fence through the Croatia’s border, into Romania and Slovenia.
