Hungarian court acquits journalist who kicked refugees
Hungarian supreme court acquitted a camerawoman, who was filmed tripping and kicking migrants on the border with Serbia in 2015.
The court ruled that Petra Laszlo should have been charged with the misdemeanor rather than a criminal offense.
The video journalist was previously given a 3-year jail term for the offense by a lower court.
The supreme court stated that her actions were "morally incorrect and illicit.”
In September 2015, a video went viral on the internet showing a man tumbled to the ground while holding his son after being tripped by Laszlo.
In another footage, Laszlo was also seen kicking a little girl, who was trying to flee police on a field on the Hungarian-Serbian border.
Laszlo, who had been working for a Hungarian TV channel named N1TV, was sacked after the footages emerged.
