Hungary has started building a high-tech second fence on the border with Serbia complete with night cameras and heat and movement sensors to keep out illegal invaders, that country’s government has announced.
Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced plans for the 10-foot high fence in August 2016, and the construction is now underway. The new fence will reinforce an existing barrier erected in 2015 at the height of the mass Third World invasion sparked off by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The HRW is particularly upset over a new draft bill proposed by the Hungarian government which to allow authorities to automatically detain invaders pretending to be “asylum seekers” in specially-created “transit zones.”
The bill also will allow the government to summarily deport the arrested invaders back over the Serbian border from anywhere in Hungary.
“The European Commission should not stand by while Hungary makes a mockery of the right to seek asylum,” said Benjamin Ward, deputy director of the Europe and Central Asia division at HRW.
The European Commission opened infringement proceedings against Hungary in December 2015, based on its already existing “asylum” legislation, but no further information about the proceedings has been made public.
