On the morning of October 7, a group of 150 Tunisians, Moroccans, and Afghans left the Vitaminka site and crossed into Hungary on foot near Horgos. They had walked one hour into Hungary before two Hungarian border patrol officers stopped them. Three other Hungarian officers arrived, possibly military, arrived shortly thereafter. Some of the officers wore balaclavas.
The respondent asked the officers not to hit him and that he would return to Serbia on his own accord. The officers, however, proceeded to beat and whip him with batons, resulting in injuries on his body.
They also told the respondent to lie face down on the ground, then kicked him repeatedly in the side, and then placed their boot on his neck for an indeterminate period of time. The officers also stole the respondent’s iPhone.
The respondent and some of his fellow group members were then taken to a nearby police station and had their photos taken. Two border patrol vans then returned the respondent to Serbia.
