Hungary: report on access to territory and asylum procedure in Hungary 2012

Friday, October 4, 2013

The Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) has published its annual report on external border monitoring activities carried out in partnership with UNHCR and the Hungarian national police. The report documents a significant increase of intercepted unaccompanied children. The HHC and UNHCR recommend that the Hungarian authorities should carry out individual and substantive examinations in each case to determine the best interest of the child in expulsion procedures.

The report is available at the website of the Hungarian Helsinki Committee.
