Hungary has been summarily dismissing asylum requests, cruelly treating and sending migrants to no-man’s land on the southern border, a human rights watchdog said Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) Hungary has set up transit zones this year to manage thousands of immigrants crossing from Serbia and Croatia since the start of 2016.

"Hungary is breaking all the rules for asylum seekers transiting through Serbia, summarily dismissing claims and sending them back across the border," Lydia Gall of Human Rights Watch said in the group’s report.

Gall, who spoke with those stranded at the Roszke and Tompa transit zones in April and May, said women and children had been beaten and sent back for entering the country without permission.

The watchdog accused Hungarian authorities of applying "legal fiction" to the entry rules, claiming that migrants languishing in the transit zones had not entered its territory.
