Two Turkish men have been expelled from Hungary in a fast-track court procedure after they attacked border police in Röszke.

The Central Investigating Prosecutor’s Office said the Turkish father and son living in Germany were waiting in line on the motorway to leave Hungary for Serbia on August 6th. The father got into an argument with a biker who took them over, shaking his fist close to his face.

According to MTI, a police officer warned him to stop threatening the biker and pushed him away. The father grabbed the officer and a colleague of his by their clothes, pulling them closer. He also grabbed a third border police, ripping off his badge of rank. The son interfered by pushing away the officers from his father.

The two men pleaded guilty and the prosecutor’s office sent them to court within two days. The Szeged district court ruled that they had committed an act of violence against an official and gave both of them a 14-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months. The two Turkish citizens were also expelled from Hungary for one year.
