A Syrian national found guilty by a local court of kicking a police officer in the chest was given a suspended prison sentence of 18 months and expelled from Hungary for two years, the Vas County prosecutor’s office told MTI on Thursday.
The prosecution said the man got off a train after arriving in Szombathely, in northwest Hungary, and ran away from police with several other migrants. Police caught up with the group by car, took them back to the train station and escorted them to another trainAustria. The Syrian man then got up on the train steps, turned around and kicked the police officer standing in front of him.
The man’s case was tried under an accelerated proceeding, County Prosecutor Jozsef Simon said.
