Basic Law to outlaw homelessness

Fidesz intends to enshrine the illegality of sleeping rough in the Constitution, MP István Bajkai announced Tuesday.

According to Bajkai, accommodation and job opportunities are guaranteed for every homeless person in Hungary.

Many people dwell in public areas, and this is a public safety and health hazard, he added.

Both the state and local councils provide shelters for the homeless, he underlined.
