Amnesty International report criticizes Hungary’s treatment of Roma, refugees

Despite some commitments from the government to prevent intimidation, Roma continued to be subjected to racist abuse and violent assaults. The trial of the suspects accused of attacks against Roma in 2008 and 2009 (during which six people, including a child, were killed) was delayed. One of the defence lawyers resigned in October after it was revealed that he was the son of one of the judges involved in the case.

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, criticized Hungary’s treatment of asylum-seekers, reporting that conditions in reception centres and the increased use of administrative detention of asylum-seekers fell short of international and EU standards. Asylum seekers returned to Hungary under the Dublin Regulation were usually issued with expulsion orders and detained, irrespective of their wish to seek asylum.

    “But Greece and Hungary caused the most worry”.
    “On 8 August in the village of Cegled “people mostly dressed in black
    uniforms gathered in small groups in Romani neighbourhoods,
    chanted anti-Roma slogans and made death threats” while
    police did nothing”.

    Conclusion…VO’s claim of having zero tolerance towards racism is a big fat lie.

    Tibor’s article can go straight into the garbage.

    Amnesty can go fuck itself. If this pathetic organization thinks it can have any influence over Hungarians then it is very wrong. I understand the Roma are not where they should be yet, but have you ever heard of Amnesty raising concerns over the perpetual fall in population of Hungarians living outside of Hungary withing the Carpathian Basin? No. It is this kind of double standard that forces Hungarians to vote Right by the droves. It is simple cause and effect. The Hungarians in Transylvania or Slovakia have no part in what the Hungarian government is engaging in, yet their dire situation is completely ignored. It’s anti-white, and anti-hungarian. Hungarians know this, and they are raising their middle finger with passion. Slowly, but surely, the rest of Europe will wake up.
    Amnesty should seriously reconsider its approach towards Magyars if it ever seeks to get anywhere.

      Maybe they should start screwing themselves?
      What do you expect AI to do – give you Viagra?
