BUDAPEST, Hungary – Hungarian prosecutors say that the camerawoman who was filmed kicking and trying to trip migrants near the border with Serbia in September 2015 has been indicted for breaching the peace.
Petra Laszlo, who later apologized for her actions while also trying to justify them, was fired by the right-wing N1TV after footage of her actions went viral on social media.
Laszlo said at the time that she panicked as refugees and migrants broke through police lines near her position and she felt under attack. She kicked a boy and a girl and later tried to trip a man carrying a boy.
Laszlo later told Russian newspaper Izvestia that her life was "ruined" and she was considering moving to Russia.
Laszlo's trial will be held in the southern city of Szeged.
