On Tuesday, the 21st of June 2022, 3 men and 1 unacompanied minor were apprehended in Hungary and deported to Romania, and then to Serbia.
The respondent reports that the group of 4 crossed the border between Serbia and Romania at around 5 p.m. Then, they walked in Romania, heading to Hungary. They crossed the Hungarian border, and continued walking for 250 meters. In that moment, they saw 5 police officers coming from Romania, with a dog, all running towards the group. The police officers were wearing black uniforms, with a romanian flag on their shoulder. The respondent states that they were Romanian police officers intervening in Hungarian territory.
The 4 men tried to hide, laying in the grass. When the Romanian police officers shouted at them “stop, go back“, and they obeyed. The respondent, as well as the other 3 men, stood up, and started walking in the direction of Romania, but the police officers pushed them violentely with their hands and kicked them with their feet anyway. One of the 4 men fell on the ground.
They were then brought back to the road DJ682, in Romanian territory, where 4 police cars, including 2 “jeeps“, were parked. They were forced to continue walking, followed by the 4 police cars, to the Serbian border (46.125930, 20.264846).
