Documentation of police violence
Since 2016, our Border Violence Monitoring-team documents violations of human rights at the EU external borders. In occasion of the Human Rights Day (December 10, 2017), Rigardu released evidence of systematic police violence against refugees:
After we noticed an increasing number of injured border returnees, we began to document their cases and to collect testimonies and pictures of the affected people. Our purpose is to create public awareness for the inhuman violence of the Croatian police and to put pressure on the responsible authorities. We are happy about contacts to journalists willing to write about this topic.
