Neues vom Zaun

Obwohl der Zaun nun mittlerweile an einigen Stellen steht,  erhöht sich die Zahl der irregulären Grenzübertritte weiter und erreichte einen neuen Höchststand: Laut einer Mitteilung der ungarischen Polizei vom 12. 8.2015 wurden in den letzten 24 Stunden 1.783 Personen aufgegriffen. Am Zaun selbst spielen sich mittlerweile absurde Szenen ab, wie das Nachrichtenportal „444.hu.“ berichtet.

It has occurred at the already built-up fence what the analysts predicted: refugees are waiting for the authorities on the Serbian side, but already on Hungarian territory. Here they are saluting and playing some march – it was heard in the police’s radio, and it turned out that a group was stopped by the fence at Mórahalom. The refugees are sitting in front of the small door and when the police comes then they play a march, salute and ask for asylum. As they are already on Hungarian territory the police must let them in. It may be the only advantage of this situation that refugees could be fingerprinted and registered immediately at border crossing.

 

Aufgriffe an der Grenze

Die ungarische Polizei hat ein Balkendiagramm zu den Aufgriffen der letzten 30 Tage veröffentlicht: Die Zahlen steigen weiter und liegen gegenwärtig bei etwa 1.500 täglich. Lediglich an drei Tagen innerhalb der letzten 30 Tage wurden weniger als 1.000 Personen wegen irregulärem Grenzübertritt verhaftet.

Budapest district mayor closes down playground to prevent refugee children from playing there

Máté Kocsis, the mayor of Budapest’s District VIII – and also communications director of the governing Fidesz party – ordered the closing down of the playground on the district’s central square in order to prevent “migrant children” from playing there, reports hvg.hu. Kocsis also made a Facebook post on Wednesday claiming that “The migrants have completely destroyed our recently renovated II. János Pál pápa (Pope John Paul II) Square. They are erecting tents, lighting fires, littering, raving, stealing, stabbing, damaging property. I have never seen this much human excrement in a public place.”

Neue Lager in Ungarn

Orbán setzt seine Ankündigung in die Tat um und lässt zwei neue Flüchtlingslager in „entlegenen Gebieten“ errichten. Hierzu der Pester Llyod:

Die ungarische Regierung hat die Errichtung zweier neuer Flüchtlingslager bestätigt. Sowohl in bzw. bei Sormás als auch in Mártonfa sollen ab Ende August bis Mitte September Container und Zelte errichtet werden. Auf einer Anwohnerversammlungin Sormás protestierten rund 100 Menschen gegen diese Pläne, die mit der Schließung alter Aufnahmestellen in Großstädten und bewohnten Gebieten einhergehen, wie sie Orbán angeordnet hat. Regierungspolitiker schilderten, ganz im Duktus der xenophoben Angstmacherei, dass sie die „Befürchtungen der Anwohner vor gewalttätigen Übergriffen und Belästigungen“ durch entsprechende Sicherheitsmaßnahmen (Zäune, bewaffnete Lagerwachen, willkürliche Verlegungen, Verhaftungen) ausräumen wollen. Rechtsextreme Gruppen kündigten Widerstand an.

In Mártonfa gibt es nicht einmal Wasser und Strom:

The outskirts of the Baranya County village of Martonfa (population 220) is a wholly unsuitable location for a refugee camp, especially as the planned intake center has no water, electricity or any system of public utilities, reports 444.hu.

Over 19 000 Immigrants Could Be Sent Back To Hungary From Western Europe As Jobbik-Backed Protests Mount Against New Reception Centres

Over 19 000 immigrants could be sent back to Hungary from Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, and the Czech Republic under the Dublin Agreements, Sándor Pintér, Hungary’s Minister of Interior, has said. Mr. Pintér said in response to an opposition question concerning the expected number of migrants to be returned to Hungary from other European Union countries that a total of 19 284 requests had been submitted to Hungary’s immigration authority, mostly from Germany and Austria. He said that since the beginning of the year, 66 788 people had applied for political refugee status in Hungary and over 43 000 of those procedures had been terminated because the applicant left the country in the meantime. The figures suggest, he said, that the migrants filed a similar application in another country, and, under the Dublin Agreements, they could be returned to Hungary. European Union member states returned 780 migrants to Hungary by July 16 this year, including 766 whose procedures had been started here. Fully 685 of them did not wait for a decision in their case but left the country shortly after filing a request, Mr. Pintér said.
