It Is Now Illegal To Help A Migrant In Hungary
From all indications, the safest place to be right now would be our home country, Nigeria.
From US to Europe, there are increasing efforts to shut out migrants, with more aggression targeted at them.
Imagine the Hungarian government passing a law that criminalises giving help to migrants.
It all started on Wednesday, when the Hungarian parliament adopted the so-called “Stop Soros’’ law banning non-government organisations from providing aid for undocumented migrants, and criminalising individuals and groups deemed to be supporting asylum seekers.
The United Nations, UN isn’t finding it funny though. On Thursday, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, condemned the new legislation, calling it shameful and “blatantly xenophobic.’’
“Parliament’s decision is an attack on fundamental human rights and freedoms in Hungary.
“The constant stoking of hatred by the current Government for political gain has led to this latest shameful development, which is blatantly xenophobic and runs counter to European and international human rights standards and values,’’ the UN official was quoted by his office to have said.
