Lithuanian Human Smuggler Sentenced to Over Two Years


A local court in Kiskunhalas, in southern Hungary, has sentenced a Lithuanian human smuggler in accelerated procedure to two years and two months in prison and expelled him from Hungary for four years and four months in a biding ruling.


Szabolcs Sárközy, a spokesman for the Kecskemét Court, said on Monday that the 21-year-old man had attempted to illegally transport 13 Tunisians to Austria on February 16. After his van was stopped by police near Kiskunmajsa, he tried to run away but was captured soon after. The migrants had put 1,500-2,500 euros per person in deposit before their departure and the driver was supposed to get 650 euros for the transport, the statement said.
