Two Afghani people were caught by police in Brcko (5 minutes walking from the Bosnian-Croatian border). They asked for asylum and the police replied ‘No’. The police officers said that they would pass them on to the Croatian authorities. They were then moved to Gunja (Croatia). The police checked their phones and took pictures of them. They stayed in detention the whole night, and at 11am. the police officers moved them to another place of custody. The police officers asked questions about their families and also checked their bags. The Croatian police pushed them back from Batrovci to Serbia.
