Federal Republic of Germany: Alleged ill-treatment of Bora A.
The following information is based on an interview, a written statement made by the victim and a medical certificate. On 28 March 1993, Bora A., a 28-year-old Turk, was stopped by police in the Wedding district of Berlin. He alleges that during the course of an identity check he was assaulted by a police officer, and that at the station he was refused medical attention, and subjected to racial abuse. A medical certificate issued the next day shows that he had suffered multiple bruising. As a result of injuries to his neck, he was required to wear a neck support for five days.
