Hungary sends arrested Croat police officers back

Today, 09:41

Hungary has returned to their own country 36 Croatian police officers who were arrested yesterday for accompanying refugees in Hungary. The Croats were arrested because they were armed and because they had brought refugees ‘illegally’ into Hungary.

Also the driver of the train bringing more than a thousand refugees on their way to Austria was arrested.


The majority of the approximately 14,000 refugees who yesterday were left by Croatia at the border with Hungary, has arrived in Austria, says correspondent Marcel van der Steen from Croatia. Last night the first buses with refugees arrived in Austria.

Hungary on Monday closed its borders to refugees, but now they seem to work with Croatia to make travel for the continued flow of asylum seekers to Austria possible. Croatia speaks of a coordinated approach with Hungary, where people at the Croatian border may change from Croatian buses to Hungarian buses and are brought directly to Austria.

But the Hungarian authorities call that a “lie” and announce that they will vote against Croatia’s accession to the Schengen area.

The fuss about the refugee train with Croatian supervisors should be seen according to Van der Steen as a political statement by Budapest underscoring their harsh clampdown on the refugee crisis.

Slovenian police said on Saturday that 1,287 had arrived as of midnight Friday, of which 483 were from Afghanistan, 470 from Syria and 126 from Iraq: here.

NEW EU figures on asylum have spectacularly exploded the lies perpetuated by the Tories and the right-wing media that Britain is being besieged by “swarms” of refugees. Statistics published yesterday by the EU data agency Eurostat show that Britain received just one in 30 of the total number of the asylum claims made by new applicants in EU countries between April and June: here.

  1. Hungary lets people through to Austria again since this morning. But the communication between Austria and Hungary lacks a lot. Austria isn’t informed about the number of refugees to expect.

    ANOTHER man has died desperately trying to reach Britain from Calais.

    The victim, believed to be Syrian, was reportedly electrocuted after trying to clamber on to a shuttle near the entrance to the Channel Tunnel.

    At least 10 people have died trying to cross from Calais into Britain since the refugee crisis began.

    Tunnel operator Eurotunnel said a shuttle was stopped shortly after leaving the platforms in Calais due to people on the tracks at around 10.20pm on Thursday night.

    A spokesman said: “The emergency services were called and immediately took them into their care. The authorities have subsequently confirmed the death of one of those taken into their charge.”

    HUNGARIAN Prime Minister Victor Orban accused Croatia yesterday of a left-wing conspiracy to lead an Arab invasion of his country.

    In a radio interview, anti-immigrant Mr Orban said that the wave of refugees fleeing wars looked “more like an army than asylum-seekers.”

    While other countries could welcome “young men from the Arab world who look like warriors,” it was unacceptable “to have this forced upon Hungary.”

    The PM accused Croatia’s Social Democratic Party government of “following the orders not so much of their people as of the Socialist International,” and of encouraging refugees to come to Europe.

    Hungary has erected a 109-mile border fence and deployed armed troops to stop refugees entering from Serbia, leading them to find routes through Croatia to friendlier Austria and Germany.

    Croatian Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic said yesterday that almost 100,000 refugees had entered the country since mid-September.
