The group of 12, some of them minors, was cought by Hungarian authorities near Kelebija. They expressed their wish to stay in the EU and requested asylum, but were told:
“No, we will send you back.”
They were then brought to a police station and locked in a car garage. It was very cold there and they didn’t have anything to drink or eat. When they asked for a toilet to wash themselves, they were not allowed to.
After five hours, the officers pushed the 12 of them back to Serbia, telling them:
“If we catch you three times in Hungary, we will beat you. Go!”
