Joint Statement of European NGO-s on Six Years of Pushbacks from Croatia

On the occasion of the publication of Centre for Peace Studies’ and Welcome Initiative’s Report on Illegal Expulsions from Croatia in the Context of the Covid-19 Pandemic showing 6-year-long systemic violence and denial of access to asylum in Croatia, CSOs issue a joint statement that calls for end of systemic violence and human rights violations, conduct of independent and effective investigations, sanctions of those responsible for implementation and cover-up of illegal practices, and establishment of a truly independent and transparent border monitoring mechanism to ensure that such practices no longer occur.

[ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS DAY NEW CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS] CPS Requests an investigation into the connection between the Ministry of Interior and men in black uniforms with balaclavas.

The Centre for Peace Studies marks International Human Rights Day with new criminal charges, for one of today's biggest human rights violations. The Centre for Peace Studies today filed two criminal complaints to the public prosecutors, for two separate cases, against unknown police perpetrators due to a reasonable doubt that they kept in detention 13 victims in total, two of whom were children, and then handed them over to ten armed men dressed in black uniforms, with balaclavas on their heads.
