Petra Lazslo, the Hungarian woman who sparked international outrage and lost her job after footage of her tripping and kicking refugees emerged online, is now planning to sue Facebook, and one of the refugees she kicked. Speaking to Russian newspaper Izvestia, she said that once her own criminal trial is over, she will file a lawsuit against Facebook for allegedly refusing to remove groups that threatened her, while deleting groups that expressed support. A second lawsuit will be directed against Osama Abdul Mohsen, one of the refugees she could be seen kicking in the incriminating videos. “He changed his testimony, because he initially blamed the police,” Laszlo said. “My husband wants to prove my innocence. For him, it is now a matter of honor.” In the same interview, she also mentioned that she is considering relocating her entire family to Russia, as they feel threatened in Hungary.
