Village mayor ready to admit refugees

Mayor László Bogdán of the village of Cserdi has offered to take in the refugees who were turned away from the town of Õcsény last week.

“We welcome the refugee families not wanted in Õcsény. We shall be proud if they rest at our place for a few days,” Cserdi said Wednesday on HírTV.

When asked what the local residents would say, Bogdán, a Roma, said: “They and I have been migrants in this country for 800 years.”
