Friday, October 4, 2013


The Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) recently updated its 2011 Report on Serbia (Serbia as a Safe Third Country Revisited) based on a field mission there on 2-4 April 2012. Overall HHC's concerns expressed in the 2011 report remain valid. The findings of the report focus on a) limited access to protection and lack of procedural safeguards; b) risk of chain refoulement; c) danger of destitution.
