On August 29th. 2017, a 27 year old person from Pakistan, was part of a group of 10 people caught by the police. They waited for a van to arrive, and after 2 hours of driving they were back in Serbia. He was beaten by the police for about half an hour. They kicked him, punched him and also took his money. The police also used a stun gun on them, and took everyones mobiles and put them in their pockets. They ordered him to go across the border to Serbia and to not come back to Croatia. When the interviewee declared that he had a friend in Europe and that he wanted to come to Europe, the police threw his mobile and told him that “Europe is not for refugees, you are a terrorist, you don’t come in Europe”.
