Racist serial killers’ life sentence

January 14th, 2016

Commenting on the life sentence handed down to three extreme right-wing recist serial killers, the leading left-wing daily accuses the general public of apathy towards the death of six fellow citizens.

In its front page editorial, Népszabadság welcomes the sentence passed by the Kúria, the Supreme Court. The three murderers killed six Roma, including a child in a series of night attacks on randomly selected Roma targets in 2008 and 2009, with the intention of provoking inter-ethnic clashes and ultimately a general war against the Roma minority. They were sentenced to life imprisonment in the first instance (See BudaPost April 8, 2013 ). Hungary’s top court approved that verdict on Tuesday. The left-wing daily would have expected the general public to show more passion in condemning the murderers and accuses the population of indifference towards what happened.  Népszabadság thinks this shows a lack of moral resilience and cohesion.
