Camerawoman for far-right site recorded attacking refugees
Camera operator Petra László of the far-right online TV station N1TV was caught on video being physically aggressive with refugees yesterday, in one instance tripping a running man carrying a child, and in another kicking a young girl as she broke through a police barricade.
Both incidents involved refugees fleeing the holding center at Röszke yesterday afternoon, where refugees have been forced to stay in difficult conditions and to sleep in the cold without shelter because officials do not have the capacity to transport people from the center to a refugee camp.
N1TV released an official statement shortly after the footage was publicized in which they announced the immediate dismissal of László for her “unacceptable” behavior, but no apology was offered for the camera operator’s behavior.
