Deputy head of parliament’s human right’s committee Timea Szabo has called for the leaders of Budapest’s police force to give evidence to the committee in connection with their handling of people who protested in support of Tibet.
Szabo told MTI in a statement on Saturday that she would investigate personally on what basis the immigration authority (BAH) had called in to its office Tibetan refugees who were living in Hungary legally and had residential and work permits.
The statement said that Politics Can Be Different (LMP), the party to which she belongs, deeply condemns the police’s treatment of Tibetan refugees and activists demonstrating in support of Tibet, by blocking them from openly expressing their opinion during the visit to Hungary of the Chinese premier.
The Help Tibet Society wrote in a separate statement on Saturday that staff of the BAH on Friday evening had taken in to the BAH office Tibetan refugees living in Hungary. Further, police had blocked demonstrators from the site of a visit by the Chinese premier.
