Budapest, September 15 (MTI) – The Szeged Court has denied that criminal trials of illegal migrants or anyone caught damaging Hungary’s border fence would be held in containers.
Babett Tarkany-Szucs, the court’s chairwoman, said trials would be carried out in proper courtrooms in Szeged, adding that two new courtrooms would be set up at the local police station.
The chairwoman said the Szeged Administrative and Labour Court may choose to conduct long-distance hearings and use telephone interpreting to hear appeals by migrants who had had their asylum applications rejected. The Szeged Court has made all the necessary technical preparations for such procedures both at the Roszke and Tompa border stations, where migrants must wait for their applications to be processed, Tarkany-Szucs said.
Tarkany-Szucs said cases involving illegal migrants will get precedence, adding that the first trial will likely be held on Wednesday.
