Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia: alleged ill-treatment of 27 Albanians in Skopje by Macedonian police

On 22 June 2001 a group of some 30 Albanian citizens who had entered Macedonia in transit on their way to other countries, primarily Greece, to look for work, were expelled back to Albania at the Tushemisht border crossing at Sveti Naum. Nearly all of the group (reports state that 27 of the 30) alleged that they had been severely ill-treated in detention in the previous two days after being arrested in Skopje.
