Hungary ignoring its responsibilities

Published 25/09/2015

The Copenhagen criteria are rules that define which country is eligible to join the European Union.

One of the criterion a country must meet is to preserve human rights. Hungary seems to ignore human rights by erecting steel barriers along its border, cleaning its hands of responsibility in the crisis.

Migrants have been subject to tear gas and have climbed razor-wire fences to travel further north.

The irony is they don't want to stay in Hungary - and it is easy to see why.
