Testimony: another case of brutal police violence, a 16 years old boy almost died of the injuries caused by the hungarian police

(prevod na srpsko-hrvatski u nastavku posta)

While on the court  (see  the trial of the  Röszke 11 and many other cases) full equipped riot police and their cars (!) are  presented as victims of plastic bottles and stones thrown by protesters,  day by day and night by night there is the constant, systematic police violence, completely normalized, something we don’t hear about or  „we got used to it“.  We got used to cases of beatings, deaths, robberies, prisons, tortures…

What responsibility we take in the process of normalization of violence and repression?  What is our  respond as members of  the  local communities on legitimate racism, apartheid laws and murderous nationalism?

Testimony: another case of brutal police violence,  a 16 years old boy almost died  of the injuries caused by the hungarian police

The testimony was taken in Belgrade from two young boys (one of them  is only 16) by an activist who is also illegalized and stuck in Serbia. The testimony was translated from urdu to english.

„ It was  on the 5th of  November,  Saturday night  10-11 PM, close to the hungarian border but on the serbian soil, a kind of abandoned place.

We have never tried to cross the fence before that, we were 36 people sleeping in that place, at late night we saw the lights and everybody tried to take the bag and run. 3 of us did not manage to escape and we were caught by the police. It was a hungarian police who crossed to the serbian soil (about 200 m far from the fence ) and they beat us very badly with their special weapon, the so called black stick. They were 3 police officers, and one of them brought  a dog.

Somehow we managed to find the main road and we wanted to be caught by the serbian police because we were  bleeding a lot and we needed urgent medical help. The police called the ambulance and they took us to the hospital.

They  smashed my head,  I have seven stitches now and my friend’s hand is injured very badly.

After the serbian police took our pictures and fingerprints, we were taken to the camp in Subotica. It’s a bad place, so we came back to Belgrade again. We hoped we can get some help here, but nobody helped us here. Nor the MSF and non of all these organizations. They don’t do anything for us. “


Dok pred sudom policija pod punom opremom  se predstavlja kao žrtva plastičnih flaša i kamenja koje su bacali protestanti (pogledajte o suđenju Röszke 11 i mnogim drugim slučajevima) iz dana u dan, iz noći u noć, konstantno je prisutno sistematsko policijsko nasilje protiv migranata. Ono je normalizovano, postalo je nešto o čemu ne čujemo ni reč ili nešto na šta smo navikli. Navikli smo na šibanja, ujede pasa, smrtne slučajeve, pljačku, zatvore, mučenja…

Kakvu odgovornost preuzimamo u procesu normalizacije nasilja i represije? Kakav je naš odgovor kao članova lokalnih zajednica na legalizovani rasizam, zakone aparthejda i ubilački nacionalizam?

Svedočenje:  Još jedan slučaj brutalnog policijskog nasilja. Šesnaestogodičnjak jedva preživeo povrede prouzrokovane od strane mađarske policije

Svedočenje je od dva mladića (jedan od njih ima samo 16 godina) preuzeo aktivista koji je i sam ilegalizovan i zaglavljen u Srbiji. Prevedeno je sa urdua na engleski i sada na srpski.

“To je bilo petog novembra, bila je subota noć, negde oko 10-11 uveče, blizu mađarske granice ali na tlu Srbije, u jednom napuštenom objektu.

Pre toga ni jednom nismo pokušali da pređemo granicu, nas 36 je spavalo na tom mestu, probudila su nas svetla i svi smo samo zgrabili torbe i pokušali da pobegnemo. Nas trojica nismo uspeli i uhvatila nas je policija. Bila je to mađarska policija koja je prešla na teritoriju Srbije, na otprilike 200 m od žice. Pretukli su nas užasno njihovom specijalnom opremom, takozvanim crnim palicama. Bilo ih je trojica i jedan je vodio psa.

Nekako smo uspeli da nađemo glavni put i želeli smo jako da nas uhvati srpska policija jer smo mnogo krvarili i bila nam je potrebna medicinska pomoć. I zaista, policija je pozvala hitnu pomoć koja nas je prevezla u bolnicu.

Meni su razbili glavu, imam sedam kopči, a ruka mog prijatelja je teško povređena.

Kada nas je policija fotografisala i uzela naše otiske, odvedeni smo u kamp u Subotici. To je grozno mesto, pa smo se ponovo vratili u Beograd. Nadali smo se da ćemo ovde dobiti neku pomoć, ali niko nam nije pomogao. Ni MSF ni bilo koja druga organizacija. Niko nije učinio ništa za nas. “
