Report story

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed outrage that the Hungarian camerawoman who was filmed tripping and kicking migrants who were fleeing police back in September 2015 wasn't given a harsher sentence. Speaking to reporters after a meeting at the Bundestag today, the Chancellor was asked to give her opinion about Petra Laszlo - the woman at the centre of the incident. Mrs. Merkel had this response:

"I think what she did was atrocious. From what I understand is that under Hungarian law the maximum penalty she can get is a hefty fine. I think that she should have felt the full brunt of the law. That three year probation sentence handed down by the judge was utterly ridiculous. If Ms. Laszlo was German and that incident had happened in my country, she most definitely would have been jailed. You can't assault innocent people like that. These migrants are fleeing civil war in their country and they come to Europe with the hope of having a better life and we Europeans must ensure that they get the best possible treatment and are showered with kindness and affection."

It was then that Juergen Hahn - a reporter from the Right Wing Junge Freitheit Newspaper asked Mrs. Merkel this question:

"Excuse me Madam Chancellor, but were you just as vocal when scores of innocent German women were sexually assaulted by some of these same migrants on New Year's Eve 2015?"

Chancellor Merkel, visibly upset, gave Mr. Hahn the evil-eyed look for about twenty seconds, then proceeded to answer a question from another reporter.
