This report concerns an event on the September 19th, at 6am in which a 26 year old man from Afghanistan reports being pushed-back to Serbia from the Slovenian border area.

He reached the Slovenian border area by train, and the Slovenian police caught him while he was crossing the border by walking. The officers from the Slovenian border police did not beat him, but called for some colleagues. He then reports being placed in a police van, and brought back to the Croatian side.

The Slovenian police handed him to the Croatian police and he states that he was then beaten by the Croatian police officers. He was then brought to Zagreb in a van, by the Croatian border police. From Zagreb, the police brought him back to the Serbian border, where the border police beat him once again, especially kicking his right leg.
