Original Report

The interviewee walked alone from Velika Kladusa across the Croatian border, and from there to Slovenia. While he was in a forest in Slovenia, he was caught by 6 Slovenian police officers who electrocuted him with an electroshock weapon, took him to the Croatian border, and threw him into a river. The police officers did not asked him any questions about his nationality or whether he had intentions to apply for asylum in Slovenia. The police further stole his mobile phone and money. He was treated in a hospital in Croatia, was unable to walk and needed a wheelchair because of open cuts in his leg, as a result of the assault by the police.
