The interviewee reports being pushed-back from Zagreb to Serbia on September 14th, 2017. The police caught him at the Hotel Borin, and brought him to the police station, because he didn’t have any identification documents.

The police officers reportedly told him that ‘asylum was closed’. He was brought back to Serbia alone in a car with 2 police officers, at the railways in Tovarnik, at 2 am. The respondent reports that the border police was waiting for him there, and his money was stolen by the police.
