RE VERZIO: Judgement in Hungary
Eszter Hajdú | 2013 | Hungary | 107’
Wednesday, 18 March, 6 pm
In 2008 and 2009, a group of Hungarian, right-wing extremists committed a series of attacks on apparently random members of the Roma community. Six people were killed, including a five year old, and five more were injured. The trial of the four suspects lasted two and a half years, and the verdict was passed in August 2013. Judgment in Hungary details the forensic trial of the four defendants whose prosecution hinges on internal pressure to force an investigation. The patchwork of testimony reveals an astonishing network of incompetent police officers, negligent paramedics and dubious witnesses, which coalesces into evidence of widespread national apathy - if not outright hate. A close look at crime and punishment in Hungary.
