Camerawoman who kicked refugees found guilty
BUDAPEST, Hungary: A clip of Hungarian camerawoman went viral on the internet in 2015 showing her kicking off refugees, including a man who was carrying his little daughter, and now the woman has been sentenced for the offence.
She has been sentenced to three years’ probation.
Petra Laszlo was caught on camera kicking and tripping migrants who were fleeing police near the Hungarian border with Serbia in September 2015.
She was fired from her job at N1TV, a television station with nationalist sympathies, after video footage spread online appearing to showing the incident.
The court in the town of Szeged, near the Serbian border, had found Laszlo guilty of disorderly conduct after a hearing in which she testified by video-link.
