Original Report

One man from Algeria had reached Vukovar by walking, before 5 police officers caught him. They took him in to the police car. He asked for asylum but they rejected his request. The police officers took all the money he had (200 euros), his mobilephone and a bag with his personal belongings. They drove him to the border, close to Adasevci. At the deportation point the police officers made him lay on the ground and started to kick him. Then they pushed him back to Serbia.
