ZAGREB, September 24, 2018 – Croatia’s law enforcement authorities have denied the allegations of a Syrian migrant that in the village of Smoljanac in the region of Lika the police forcibly separated him from his five-year daughter.

The Syrian man, who gave this statement in Bosnia and Herzegovina about the incident in which the police reportedly separated him from his child while he was trying to buy some provisions in a grocery shop in Smoljanac, also claims that he was deported back to Bosnia and Herzegovina and that during the deportation the police did not want or could not understand that his daughter was still staying in the vicinity of the shop.

Following his claims and an appeal in which he urges a general public to help him to find his five-year daughter, the Croatian police said on Sunday in response to Hina’s queries that the Syrian’s allegations about the incident in the grocery shop were incorrect and that there had been no police activities in the said village.

As for the allegations about the disappearance of the child, the police have not received any official report about that, nevertheless, the police officers on the ground have been alerted.

However, a lack of accurate data for the identification of the child makes the search more difficult, the spokeswoman for the Lika-Senj Police Department, Maja Brozičević said on Sunday.

She also called on citizens to report to police any info they might have about the reportedly missing child.
