Hungarian TV journalist fired for tripping up fleeing migrants

The journalist who went viral after kicking and tripping up migrants fleeing police, including a man carrying a child, has vowed to sue the refugee for changing his testimony.

Petra Laszlo, was filmed tripping up children and a Syrian father carrying a crying child as they attempted to flee across a field on the Hungarian-Serbian border.

Laszlo was sacked with immediate effect after the TV station saw the footage online, and she has been subjected to torrents of justified hatred on social media.

Well now she’s back and she reckons she’s going to sue the refugee that she kicked, Osama Abdul Mohsen, after he changed his testimony

She told Russian newspaper Izvestia: ‘He changed his testimony because he initially blamed the police.

'My husband has vowed to prove my innocence.' she added.

She also wants to take legal action against Facebook, who allegedly didn’t remove threatening groups on the site.

After the incident happened in September she said:

'I'm not a heartless, racist children-kicking [camerawoman]. I do not deserve the political witch hunts against me, nor the smears, [or] the death threats... I am truly sorry.'
