Hungary will refuse entry to returning migrants who did not enter EU in Hungary

It would be “unfair” if Hungary “rather than the rich Scandinavian countries” had to accommodate these people

Hungary will refuse entry to migrants who are being returned by other countries in Europe, it has been revealed.

According to the head of the Prime Minister's Office, Hungary will not accept migrants who are facing return to Hungary from countries where they moved to after entering the European Union at the Greek borders.

Minister János Lázár said that only migrants who first entered the EU in Hungary will be accommodated.

Lázár insisted that “Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and Norway” seek to send “tens of thousands” of migrants to Hungary, people who had first entered the community through another EU member state.

Lázár said it would be “unfair” if Hungary “rather than the rich Scandinavian countries” had to accommodate these people.
