Macedonia: Collecting blows: The alleged ill-treatment of Roma in Sasavarlija

By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 65/008/2001

Amnesty International is concerned that Orhan Aliov, Selajdin Mustafov, Šehri Mustafov, Mamet Red epov and Ferat Skenderovski were allegedly ill-treated by civilians and police near the village of Šašavarlija in the region of Štip. The formal complaint lodged by the men about the ill-treatment received was rejected by the Štip Prosecution Office and AI is concerned that the lack of investigation into the case might lead to impunity.
