Kuria declares camerawoman's actions of kicking migrants were "unlawful" and “morally disapprovable”

Hungary's supreme court declared that Petra László's actions were unlawful and “morally disapprovable”, adding that they constituted rowdy behavior, which counts as a misdemeanor

Hungary's supreme court has declared that the actions of a camerawoman who kicked and tripped up migrants were unlawful and “morally disapprovable”, adding that they constituted rowdy behavior, which counts as a misdemeanor.

However, the Kúria dismissed disorderly conduct charges against Petra László on Tuesday.

In a statement, the court ruled that the camerawoman’s actions did not constitute anti-social behavior, and therefore could not be classified as disorderly conduct.

However, the court declared that her actions were unlawful and “morally disapprovable”, adding that they constituted rowdy behavior, which counts as a misdemeanor.

The Kúria ruled to close the case, noting that the statute of limitations on the misdemeanor had now expired.

We reported last year how the camerawoman was banned from working in Hungary’s parliament after she insulted a lawmaker during an interview.
