Subject: DG Home technical mission to Hungary/initial feedback and outcomes from the meeting on 19
With reference to DG Home technical mission to Hungary, please find attached the detailed report on the
discussions and outcomes from today’s meeting for your awareness.
Please note that the report contains only initial feedback provided by DG Home on the spot.
Main outcomes related to the meeting with Frontex:
· The delegation notified that alleged physical violence by the Hungarian Police was indicated in the
report from external sources, however within Frontex SIR mechanism there are no indications for
a systematic violence from the HUN Police side. This could be due to the fact that GOs are not
involved in the escorting and on the other hand GOs presence could have a positive effect on the
HUN Police practices.
· Concerning the officers deployed from the Visegrad Countries, the delegation considered that as
the officers are deployed from EU Member States, they should be integrated under Frontex
coordinated joint operations.
Main outcomes related to the meeting with HUN authorities:
· The transit zone is well-managed, concerns are related to the effective access to asylum;
· They have not observed physical violence from the HUN Police side during their visit;
· However seems that the procedure in the closed reception centre is slow and that migrants do not
receive sufficient information about the procedures, the following steps, and timing. Based on the
brief interview performed with migrants in the reception centre seems that some “obvious” cases
are also proceeded too slowly;
· Concerning the information provided by HUN Police in written form for the migrants escorted back
to the gate, the information contains the possibility to lodge a complaint however no postal or
email address or phone number is indicated, which makes difficult for the migrants to lodge a
· Compared to their visit in the first half of the year they could notice change in the practice, namely
that Dublin procedure is initiated in most of the cases.
