Budapest, January 12 (MTI) – The Kuria, Hungary’s supreme court, on Tuesday handed down three real life sentences for the murders of six Roma people in nine attacks in 2008-2009.
The ruling upheld two earlier rulings and is not appealable.
The three men were charged with murder of the first degree and other crimes. A fourth man, the driver during the attacks, was earlier sentenced to an imprisonment of 13 years in a final ruling.
The attacks were committed on Roma families living on the outskirts of small, rural villages between July 2008 and August 2009 in central and eastern Hungary, claiming the lives of six people, including a child of five.
