Original Report

On August 23rd, 2017, in Dobova, Slovenia, the Slovene police found two people  in a truck. A police officer pointed a gun at them, asking them to get out. The police broke one of their phones and took the other one. But they didn’t have any SIM cards inside. Their money was taken from them as well.

When they asked for the asylum, the police answered no. The Slovenian police brought them to the Croatian police, in the border area, where the officers asked them to fill out a paper with name and age. The Croatian police brought them directly back to Šid, in a van with 5 people.
