Target: Viktor Orban, Prime Minister of Budapest Hungary
Goal: Fire and punish officers who allegedly used excessive force against migrants.
Two police officers reportedly used excessive force against two migrants, and their only punishment was a measly fine. A newspaper stated that one officer kneed a migrant in the face while he was sitting on the ground, posing no threat to the officer’s livelihood. The other victim was unnecessarily pepper sprayed by an officer from across the border fence, according to reports.
Hungary’s international partners, such as the United Nations, for instance, have taken notice of the mistreatment that migrants have been subjected to. The number of cases has continued to grow ever since the government began rounding up migrants who have been placed in containment camps along the border as their asylum requests are pending. from containment camps along the border.
According to a newspaper, almost all the reports filed against officers between the time of the border’s closure and now have been dismissed. Clearly, the issue of police brutality against migrants is being largely ignored and swept under the rug by the government, which has denied the reports.
Dear Mr. Orban,
Two police officers were reportedly fined for using excessive force against migrants. According to reports, one of the officers kneed a migrant in the head, and another officer pepper sprayed a migrant from across the border fence.
Migrants are continuously subjected to abuse at the hands of police because the issue goes ignored and the officers aren’t ever punished for it. Excessive force We, the undersigned, are calling on you to stop allowing this abuse to go ignored and see to it that these officers are fired indefinitely for using excessive force.
