Amnesty Urges Bulgaria to Investigate Migrants’ Allegations of Abuse by Police
Amnesty International has called on Bulgarian authorities to conduct “an immediate, thorough and independent investigation” into allegations of abuse at the hands of the police reported by refugees and migrants and make its outcomes public.
“A number of refugees and migrants interviewed by Amnesty International since August 2015 have reported instances of push-backs or other forms of abuse at the border between Bulgaria and Turkey,” the organizations said in a statement posted on its website.
Amnesty International noted that the alleged abuses of refugees and migrants by the Bulgarian police were "an ongoing concern".
“The organization is not aware of any conclusive investigation into these allegations,” Amnesty International said.
