Hungary's Orban blasts human rights court verdict as "asburd"

Budapest (dpa) - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Friday blasted the European Court of Human Rights over an "absurd" verdict ordering his government to compensate Bangladeshi asylum seekers for poor treatment.

"The whole thing is absurd and incomprehensible," the fiercely anti-immigration Orban said on national radio. "A country is being fined for following its own laws."

The Strasbourg-based court on Tuesday said Hungary must pay two Bangladeshi men 10,000 euros (10,772 dollars) each because it detained them for three weeks and expelled them back to Serbia in 2015.

Orban said the verdict backed "smugglers, Brussels [EU] bureaucrats and foreign-funded organizations," which referred to the Hungarian branch of the Helsinki Committee for human rights which legally represented the Bangladeshi asylum seekers in Strasbourg.

At the peak of the migration crisis, Orban emerged as the leader of the front within the European Union which sought to block refugees and migrants from entering the bloc.

Though all countries on the Balkan route sealed their borders to migrants a year ago, Hungary implemented the harshest measures - from two razor-wire fences along the border with Serbia to a law criminalizing border trespassers.

Wednesday, President Janos Ader signed into effect a new law forcing asylum seekers in Hungary into special camps along the border with Serbia. The law was sharply criticized internationally as a violation of international law.
