VIENNA, 13 Jan. /TASS/. The reporter of the Hungarian TV channel N1 Peter Laszlo, scandalously famous for live the bandwagon to make a refugee with a child, sentenced to three years of probation.
More than 360 thousand migrants arrived in 2016 in Europe, the Mediterranean
About the verdict, which was delivered by the court of Szeged, announced a television broadcasting company of Bi-bi-si.
The incident took place in September 2015 near the point of reception of refugees in the Hungarian city of Resko and caused a huge public outcry. Laszlo, who shot the story, tripped the Syrian migrant with a child in her arms, who was trying to evade police. The video clearly captured the gesture of the journalist, and the fall of man. Shortly thereafter, Laszlo was dismissed, and the Prosecutor’s office opened a case against her on charges of hooliganism .
With the announcement of the verdict, the judge stressed that the actions of the reporter became a “violation of universally accepted norms”. The argument of the lawyers about Laszlo attempts to defend against a running crowd of several hundred people was rejected. Very defendant, not keeping tears, said that after the incident, repeatedly received threats in his address, the victim of a “campaign of hatred”.
