Original Report

On September 3rd, 2017, a 16 year old person from Afghanistan reported being pushed back from the Slovenian border to Serbia. The respondent stated that the border police caught him in a container, near Dobova and ordered him to sit down, before they beat him and their dogs attacked him and bit him in the leg. The police then brought him back to Serbia in a van, and let him alone telling him, “You go Serbia”.
