Trial with migrants – level 1

06-07-2016 07:00

Viktor Orban is the Hungarian Prime Minister. He is against migration there. He wants to stop it.

Ten migrants try to cross the border to Serbia. This happens last year.

Now, the migrants must go to trial in Hungary. This is the first time something like this comes to trial. Nine of the men must go to prison. However, they get free in the end.

A person from the UN talks to the media after the trial. He says that he is worried.

Difficult words: border (the line between two countries), trial (a place where people say if you are guilty of a crime or not).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
