Court sentences Ahmed H. to seven years in prison

The Szeged Court on Wednesday sentenced to seven years in prison Syrian Ahmed Hamed, on charges of terrorism and entering Hungary illegally.

He is also banned from entering Hungary for ten years after serving his sentence.

Hamed threw rocks at border police during a disturbance at Roszke on September 16, 2015, an act classified as terrorism.

A resident of Cyprus at the time, Hamed had been escorting his parents as they fled from Syria to Europe.

As the verdict is open to appeal, a second-instance court will try the case. (index.hu; 444.hu; 24.hu; hirado.hu; origo.hu)
