PROTECTION AT EXTERNAL BORDERS – SERBIA

QUESTIONAIRE Date and place of interview: 19.07.2016. Park at the bus station in Belgrade

V. EVENT DATA: 4. Exact location of event: Hungarian border 5. Date of event: 17.07.2016. 6. Event description Me, Ali and Siamak are here in Serbia for more than a month, and we tried to cross the Hungarian border for 4 times. We went to Subotica by bus, and when we got there we saw a smuggler who arrange us the taxi to go to the border. When we got to the border, smuggler cut the fence and told us to go in, but he didn’t come with us so we had to use our GPS to move around. On the Hungarian side they have high technology-projector of movement, helicopter with a camera which is patrolling all the time, and also some parts of the border fence have cameras. We were in Hungary, walking for couple of hours when police cached us. They were equipped with tear gas, a big tank they were wearing on their back, guns, shockers, knifes. The worst for me wasn’t the physical abuse, but psychological. For example, they would put us all on the ground and then give us their hand to help us get up, but then all of a sudden start to beat us again. Also, with Serbian police you can talk, but with them, when you ask them something they just start laughing, come near to your face and put pepper spray on you. They also put us on the ground and not beat us right away, but the expectation of beating is what makes the psychological torture. They put a gun in my face, they didn’t shoot, but were threatening to shoot, they beat me so hard that I still have blood in my urine.

Event description There were 15 of us coming to the border with smuggler, but when we crossed the border, only 4 of us were left, because 7 of them were caught by the police immediately, and 4 of them couldn’t pass the border at all. So we were in the corn field with a smuggler for 1 hour when he decided to leave us there because there were only 4 of us and he didn’t want to call a car for us only. So he went and we were left alone not knowing where we are going. We were walking for some time when we went out to the main road, and that is when police cached us. We were relieved they found us because we didn’t know where to go, and we thought they would help us. But they didn’t.
