Hungary criminalises homeless sleeping

Hungarian government takes steps against homeless by making sleeping rough a criminal offence.

    People sleeping rough on the streets of Hungary are being threatened with imprisonment.

    It is part of a government crackdown on the homeless which is raising serious concerns within the EU.
