Prisoners to construct supporting structures for border fence
Some 44 inmates of the Pálhalma National Prison are working two shifts in a galvanizing plant of DAK Steel Structure Ltd. to build supporting structures for the proposed border fence along the Serbian border, Hungarian news agency MTI reported this morning.
According to Fidesz lawmaker Dénes Galambos, the border fence is necessary due to Hungaryʼs obligation under the Schengen system to control the Hungarian-Serbian border, where thousands of people are entering the country illegally, MTI reported.
The Hungarian government is building a 175 km-long "temporary" wire fence on the Serbian border in order to "protect" Hungary from the influx of "illegal immigrants". Opponents of the fence claim that the measure is in no way a solution to the problem, and the European Union should solve the issue jointly with all its member states.
