Since the summer of 2016 reports about police brutality and human rights abuses done against people trying to cross the Serbian-Hungarian borders have dramatically increased. Characterically blunt, the government even officially called a special police unit deployed since February 2017 at the border with Serbia ‘border hunters’. In parallel with the establishment of the border hunter unit new laws were introduced, which enable the Hungarian police to push-back people from the whole territory of the country and thus make the abuses less visible.
