Refugees sit at a bonfire at a migrant collection point near Roszke village on the Hungarian-Serbian border on September 8, 2015The UN refugee agency warned Tuesday that Hungary’s tough new emergency migrant laws, which are due to go into effect next week, could cause further chaos in the EU member state. Speaking to journalists in Budapest, UNHCR’s Europe director Vincent Cochotel also warned that criminalising illegal border crossings could violate the UN Convention on Refugees if it involved asylum seekers. The new penalties include three years in prison for anyone climbing over the newly-built razor wire fence along the border with Serbia, and also allow for new border “transit zones” to hold asylum seekers while their applications are being processed.
