In the early morning of the 27th of May 2022 a group of 33 Afghan men was pushed back from Hungary to Serbia.

The respondent explained that him and a group of 26 Afghan men was in the Hungarian forest close to the border to Serbia for two days when they were found and arrested around 1 or 2 am.

The respondent says he identified  3 or 4 vehicles including two white and blue “buses” and one silver car.

“They took my power bank and didn’t give it back. My power bank and some mobile phones. When the Hungarian police take mobiles they don’t give them back.”


He emphasizes that “their behavior is very bad. This police wanted to hit everybody but they didn’t do it. They said to everybody fuck you and other bad words in English. They used bad words for everybody.”

“When you looked at this police he took the dog to you, made it come near you just to make you afraid. The dog bit our bags and clothes but fortunately no people.”

He adds that the police took pictures of the people arrested and then put them into a “bus”. “Inside was like a jail with very small rooms.” He said they were all put there and found 7 or 8 other people already in, adding to 33 or 34 people.

“After they drove to the border and deported us to Serbia around 3:30 or 4 am this morning.”
