Amnesty International hat einen neuen Bericht zu Ungarn veröffentlicht. Es geht vor allem um die Transit-Zonen und push-backs nach Serbien unter Einsatz von Schlagstöcken, Hunden, Pfefferspray, etc. Es findet sich allerdings auch eine ziemlich klare Aussage zur Asylhaft:
„Those who do get into the country risk a multitude of further rights violations. The detention of asylum-seekers has become routine. In early August, over half of the twelve hundred asylum-seekers residing in Hungary were in asylum detention. Despite repeated requests, Amnesty International was not allowed to visit the asylum detention centres to document the conditions asylum-seekers were kept in. However, the organization has interviewed several former detainees in the Körmend tent camp and in Austria, who reported beatings and threats of violence by the police and security guards inside the detention centre. They also spoke of the frustration and trauma among the asylum-seekers locked up without having committed a crime. Amnesty International interviewed several asylum-seekers who harmed themselves in desperation“.
