Original Report

On August 26th. 2017, a 24 year old person from Libya was caught in Slovenia. He was found in a truck, as the police was checking it with flashlights. They took his phone. He asked for asylum but they brought him to the Croatian police. The Croatian police brought him back to Serbia, in a van along with other people on the move. When they arrived at the Serbian border close to the railway, they exited the van one by one, and they started to walk in direction of Sid. To frighten them the police officer sent a dog behind them. The interviewee kicked the dog that was trying to bite him at the ankle. The 3 Croatian police officers beat him, causing his nose to bleed. It was the 5th. time he was deported.
