A Syrian man has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for his role in a migrant riot at the Röszke border crossing station last autumn. Now you can read the press statement of US Deputy Department:
Mark C. Toner
Deputy Department Spokesperson
December 6, 2016
The United States is concerned by the prosecution and sentencing in Hungary of Ahmed Hamed, a Syrian native involved in clashes between police and asylum-seekers near the town of Röszke at the Hungary-Serbia border in September 2015, based on a broad interpretation of what constitutes “terrorism.”
We urge the government of Hungary to conduct a transparent investigation, with input from independent civil society groups, into the events at Röszke and to review the cases of Mr. Hamed and those similarly convicted. We will continue to follow the case of Mr. Hamed closely.
Why doesn’t the American State Dept. mind their own business or is this one of their operatives.
Illegally crossing a border is a crime. Why would anyone encourage lawlessness. The people who participate in this should be punished, no other comment is necessary.
Only 10 Years ???? Should have organised a firing squad ISIS style !!!
