Budapest, January 6 (MTI) – The Metropolitan Court handed three life-sentences in a non-final ruling to members of the “Ároktő gang” today.
The six-member gang based in Arokto, in east Hungary, committed a dozen wanton attacks against elderly people in Budapest suburbs and in rural areas in 2008 and 2009. Two of the victims died from their injuries and the charge of attempted murder was established in connection with several of the attacks. The prosecutor asked for five real life-sentences.
The court ruled that two of the gang members can never be released but the third may be eligible for parole in 30 years’ time.
A fourth suspect of the six-member gang received eight years, a fifth member received twenty years and the sixth member ten years.
