Original Report

Three people (two of them from Afghanistan and one from Pakistan), were walking on the road 50km. from the border when the police saw them. The police officers did not beat them at the catchment place, but later the police beat them at the deportation point. The police kicked the 3 men in the knees and back.

They asked for asylum, but the police replied “Go, picku materinu, Serbia” and “go Bosnia”. The police checked their phones looking for GPS and pictures. They were then pushed-back in Batrovci.
