Original Report

A 16 year old person from Afghanistan reported being pushed back from Croatia to Serbia on September 13th. The respondent stated that the police caught him about 18km from Zagreb, and when he asked for asylum they told him that he was too far from the capital, so he had to go back to Sid. He was walking in a group of 13 people (only teenagers and young people). The police brought them back to Batrovci in a van, at 8am.
