The Szeged Regional Court convicted a total of 23 migrants of crossing Hungary’s border illegally on Sunday, a spokeswoman for the Szeged Court told MTI.
Erika Juhaszne Pragai revealed that the court expelled 11 illegal migrants for one and 12 migrants for two years from Hungary. Fifteen of the migrants were Afghan citizens, seven were Pakistani and one defendant was an Iranian national.
All sentences are legally binding and none of the defendants asked for a written copy of the verdict, the court said.
Out of the three accelerated proceedings, the court postponed two trials on Sunday and a third case was not heard because the defendant did not show up.
