This comes as Hungary "prepares to build a second fence on the border with Serbia to keep out refugees and other migrants."

According to the same source, prisoners in Marianosztra now work in three instead of two shifts, as was the case earlier this year.

Hungary has also "sold or donated fence elements, including wire and steel posts, to other countries in the region, including Slovenia and Macedonia."

Hungary's Helsinki Committee is quoted as saying that "the fence, the closure of asylum centers and other measures" were all "destroying the asylum system."
