Tompa, 6 April 2017, Thursday (MTI) – After the previous 50-50 places, now not less than 250-250 people can be accommodated in the transit zones of Röszke and Tompa, where all the asylum-seekers can await the decision on their asylum request. The Tompa facility was officially presented to Sándor Pintér Minister of Interior by József Seres, head of Southern Great Plain Directorate of Immigration and Asylum Office. 

     József Seres highlighted that as of 28 March applicants may submit the asylum request only in the transit zones. The police first check their clothes and luggage upon arrival from Serbia to make sure they do not possess gun or other possible harmful object to the life. Then a photograph and fingerprints are taken by asylum authority staff. These data are entered into the EU database, and come under scrutiny whether the applicant had previously submitted a claim in another Member State – as told by the director.
     Personal interviews are held in a separate room, everyone is interrogated in their mother tongue or the language they daily use, asylum specialists are assisted by interpreters on a closed-circuit video system – reminded József Seres.

     Applicants shall await the ruling of the asylum authority in the transit zone and may lodge a motion for review to the court. Hearing by the judge can be performed through the closed-circuit video system, though procedure on site is also possible.

     Free legal aid is available for foreigners of the transit zone, and lawyer is appointed upon request; guardian is appointed for unaccompanied minors. If there are some doubts regarding the age of an applicant, primary tests are conducted by medical officers of the Hungarian Defense Forces serving in the transit zone; in controversial cases forensic experts are brought in to make the decision – explained the director. He added that unaccompanied children below the age of 14 are automatically taken into care in Hungary, while unaccompanied minors over the age of 14 must stay in the transit zone.

     Families, single men and unaccompanied minors are housed in different sectors of the transit zone. Applicants are accommodated in containers of five. Adults receive meals three, children five times a day in line with the religious rules – said the director.

     József Seres also emphasized that playing room, open-air playground and ecumenical place of worship is built in the facility. The foreigners placed in the transit zone are supplied with sanitary products, bedclothes and social workers can be found in each sector of the transit zone.
