Trial with migrants – level 2
The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is against migration there. He says that the EU risks losing another country if the migration is not stopped.
Ten migrants came to trial for trying to illegally cross the border into Serbia last year. It is the first case of its kind to come to trial. Hungary sentenced nine of the men to nearly a year in jail, but then the country released them.
After the trial, a United Nations spokesman said that he was worried that a country would criminalise people who are fleeing war zones.
Difficult words: trial (a place where people say if you are guilty or innocent of a crime), spokesman (a person who speaks for a group), flee (run away from a place).
