Officials in the Central European country have erected 324 residential units across two different “villages” for migrants with ongoing asylum applications. The villages will house migrants of all ages, including those who are underage. The ECHR has taken exception to the policy ruling that at least eight underage asylum seekers should not be housed in the new residences, Die Zeit reports.
The Hungarian government announced the move to relocate and limit the ability for migrants to move around the country in February with an estimated 586 migrants to be transferred to the new villages. Security adviser of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, György Bakondi, said Tuesday: “From today on, the expanded transit zone will be operational 24 hours a day.”
