Budapest, October 5 (MTI) – Lawmakers of the leftist opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) have asked for a parliamentary investigative committee to be set up to look into last month’s clashes between migrants and police on the Hungarian-Serbian border near Roszke.

Agnes Vadai said fresh accounts by reporters indicate that members of Hungary’s counter terrorism force TEK “brutally assaulted migrants and reporters” at the scene “without reason and without warning”.

Vadai said DK wants to know whose decision it was to deploy TEK and “provoke conflict by having innocents beaten up”. She said the investigation should also be carried out in order to prevent putting Hungarian police in harm’s way “for political reasons”.

  1. …TEK “brutally assaulted migrants and reporters” at the scene “without reason and without warning”…

    “Without reason” (?)and “without warning” (?): the migrants were told they cannot cross the border at Röszke, on Sept. 17th. They didn’t accept this, and they took to throwing stones, burning torches, and bottles, over the fence, at the border guards brutally, injuring some of them. It would be good if the whole picture was reported, not just bits and pieces to gratify some political purpose.
