Exactly one year ago, amendments to the Hungarian asylum system came into force that drastically reduced the chances of genuine asylum-seekers to receive protection by fundamentally altering the asylum procedure. This past year saw threats of imprisonment up to one year for those who assist asylum-seekers; the automatic rejection of almost all asylum claims; deliberate starvation of detainees in the transit zones; attempted deportations to the country of origin of applicants whose claims were never examined on their substance; and finally, the reintegration of the asylum authority into the Police and the dissolution, after two decades, of the Immigration and Asylum Office.

You can read our new Information Update that provides a concise summary of the legal changes and their implementation here.
