Migrant Accuses Croatian Police of Separating Him from Young Daughter

Total Croatia News

NGOs accuse Croatian authorities for their alleged behaviour toward migrants once again.

A search has been going on for days for Allsa, a five-year-old Syrian girl who has been separated from her father during his unlawful expulsion from Croatia, according to activists from the Are You Syrious NGO, reports Index.hr on September 23, 2018.

The father from Syria posted a message on Twitter, asking for help to find his five-year-old daughter Allsa, claiming that the Croatian police separated them when he was captured after they crossed the border from Bosnia and Herzegovina into Croatia.

As the girl’s father told the activists from Are You Syrious, Allsa’s mother has died, and the two of them escaped from the war in hopes of finding security on the European soil. They added that photographs of the girl have been published on the explicit request of her father, who is desperately trying to find out any information about where his daughter is.

About 12 days ago, they entered Croatia together with another refugee family from Iraq. After two days of hiking, they were hungry and exhausted. Allsa was waiting with the other family, while her father entered a grocery store to buy food and water. The police officers stopped him, pulled him in the car and drove him back to Bosnia and Herzegovina, ignoring his requests to return and find the little Allsa.

He claims that, as has happened to many migrants before, they took his money and smashed his mobile phone. The destroyed phone was the only way to get in touch with the family with whom his daughter could still be staying.

He reported everything to the Bosnian police, who promised to contact the Croatian authorities, but the fate of the girl is still unclear.

“If anyone has any information about her whereabouts, please let us know. It is particularly worrying that Allsa is the second child in just a few days for whom we know was separated from their family during the intervention of Croatian police officers,” announced the Are You Syrious activists.
