U.N. agency urges Hungary to repeal tightened asylum rules

A government spokesman said the new rules would provide a possibility for asylum seekers to submit their requests in a regulated manner.

“Illegal migration goes against Hungarian and European Union regulations,” the spokesman said in an email. “Therefore, in line with the opinion of the Hungarian people, Hungary will continue to protect the EU’s Schengen (agreement on visa-free travel) borders from illegal migration.”

The UNHCR urged Orban’s government to withdraw the act and bring its asylum system in line with international human rights laws and EU law.

During the peak of Europe’s 2015 migration crisis, Orban ordered Hungary’s southern border to be sealed, blocking a route for hundreds of thousands of migrants.

Hungary moved to dismantle the migrant transit zones at its southern border after a European court ruling. But human rights groups say the newly tightened rules will make it even harder for refugees to gain asylum in the EU via Hungary.
