Hungary’s anti-immigrant fence widely condemned

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Cécile Pouilly has joined voices condemning Hungary’s announced plan to build a fence to keep out refugees entering the country.

Hungarian officials said on June 17 that the country plans to build a wall along the 175 km border between it and Serbia.

Serbian prime minister Aleksandar Vučić also condemned the proposed fence, according to media reports. “Building walls is not the solution. Serbia can’t be responsible for the situation created by the migrants; we are just a transit country. Is Serbia responsible for the crisis in Syria?” he said.
