The group of 45 started their journey in Serbia and after they crossed the Croatian border, they continued walking north through the country. 

When they were already close to Slovenia, they had run out of food and didn’t eat anything for two days. The interviewees stated that, at some point, Croatian officers arrested them and immediately beat them with their batons. The group was then kept in detention for more than three hours. They neither received food nor water, even though they asked for it.

Then, the interviewee states that 10 individuals of the 45 had to enter a bus and were pushed back to Serbia near the town of Sid (SRB).
