UN's Zeid says Hungary's new laws are "blatantly xenophobic"

GENEVA, June 21 (Reuters) - New Hungarian laws that criminalise people for helping asylum-seekers are shameful and blatantly xenophobic, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein said in a statement on Thursday.

“The constant stoking of hatred by the current government for political gain has led to this latest shameful development, which is blatantly xenophobic and runs counter to European and international human rights standards and values,” he said. (Reporting by Tom Miles Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
