It seems that Hungarian immigration critics have been using a little anti-enrichment juju to deter any migrants who might be thinking of crossing the border into Hungary.
Many thanks to CrossWare for translating this brief note from the “Daily Migrant” website:
“Imitation severed heads scaring the migrants at the Hungarian border”
Made from sugar beets and looking like rotten human heads, placed in the Serbian-Hungarian border as human scarecrows, to stop people coming over the border.
The pictures were published in a Facebook group: Police and Soldiers with you [Vele-TEK is a wordplay combining the popular Hungarian Anti-Terrorist Commando SWAT name with the word “with you” in Hungarian — translator].
Nobody knows who placed the carvings at the border, but one suspects some civilian patriot groups, who visit the border frequently to do some voluntary border control. On the question of HVG [leftist Hungarian magazine: Daily World Economy — translator] the police commented that in 2015 there were 18 cases, in 2016 so far in eight cases on which they opened investigations into illegal border policing.
[Translator’s note: Scary masks used against Turks and winter are an age-old tradition in Hungary, called Busójárás = Busó-walking. See more in this Wiki link.]
