Original Report

3 people crossed the border from Serbia to Croatia and were caught by police 7km. into Croatian territory. One of the police officers, who saw them first, called his colleagues as soon as he saw the 3 men. As more officers arrived, all the police officers moved close to the 3 men, and started beating them very hard. They asked for asylum and the police officers answered “no asylum, go back to Serbia”, and threatened to kill them if they ever come back to Croatia. They were brought back to the Serbian border in a car, where the police kicked them and ordered them to go back to Serbia.
