The trial of the ten people accused for „illegal border crossing during participation in mass riot”
After the end of the trial on the „first level court” most of the people were sent to Bicske, an open camp for people in their asylum procedure near Budapest. At the moment seven of those people have moved on to Western Europe. The other three people are still in Hungary...
Yamen A., whose verdict was three years imprisonment and 10 years expulsion from Hungary is currently in the prison of Szeged. We are trying to get in touch with him, but the procedure is quite complicated, as it is him who has to ask first for permission to visit.
Farouk A. is in a detention center in Kiskunhalas. After the end of the trial he was also sent to Bicske, but a few days later he was moved to Kiskunhalas. The pretrial detention has to be renewed in every two months, the decision will be reviewed in September by the Immigration office (BÁH).
Kamel J. is in the detention center of Békéscsaba and his application for family reunification is in progress. Apart from Yamen, he is the only person who was not in Bicske after the trial, he was immediately moved into the detention center. After two months he requested his relocation into an open camp, but the Immigration Office refused it, justifying the decision with his lack of identity documents and prolonged his detention. His lawyer explained that until the decision of the family reunification most probably they will not be able to achieve his relocation. They are waiting to receive the decision in the middle of September.
In the „first level court” verdict people got 2-10 years of expulsion from Hungary. The phrasing of the decision is really obscure, with some legal twisting it could mean expulsion from the Schengen Zone. According to the lawyer of Kamel J. , probably if people leave before the verdicts enactment the court desicion could only apply for Hungary, not to the whole Schengen Zone.
The „first level court” has sent the verdict to the „second level court” recently, as both the state attorney and the lawyers of the accused have opposed the verdict. Most probably the trials on the „second level” will not start before 2017. People who are already abroad do not have to attend the trials personally, their lawyer can represent them.
