BUDAPEST May 4 Hungarian prosecutors on
Thursday charged 11 people, four of them with murder and all
with human trafficking, in connection with the death of 71
migrants found in a lorry by an Austrian motorway in August
A statement from the Prosecution Office of Bács-Kiskun
county, from where the lorry set out on its fatal journey, said
it had asked for life sentences for four men and fixed-term
prison sentences and expulsion for the rest of the accused.
Four men participated in the transport of the 71 migrants
directly with the rest involved in sustaining a network that
made hundreds of thousands of euros from human smuggling, the
statement said, as thousands of refugees and migrants crossed
the Balkans that year.
