The Guardian has released a video of naked migrants on the border between Serbia and North Macedonia

Il Guardian released a video showing some men stripped of their clothes on the border between Serbia and North Macedonia: according to the Macedonian NGO Legis, the images would show migrants forced to return to North Macedonia barefoot and in temperatures close to zero. For various human rights groups, the video would be evidence of the worsening of mistreatment of migrants heading towards European Union countries (of which neither Serbia nor North Macedonia are part). The Guardian However, he says he has not had the opportunity to independently verify the authenticity of the images, which date back to February 10th.

For some time now, Serbia has become a very important hub for the Balkan migrant route and is crossed by an ever-increasing number of people trying to reach the European Union. And this is because, despite not being part of it, for many years Serbia has had a very liberal policy on visas to enter its territory, especially compared to other border states known for violently rejecting migrants and asylum seekers, such as Croatia and Hungary.

According to what Jasmin Redjepi, the president of Legis, says, rejections of this type tend to occur “when the European Union prepares to introduce restrictions for migrants in transit”. In this case, notes Redjepi, they occurred just after the conclusion of a meeting for cooperation on the border between the Union and Serbia, which was aimed at strengthening the Serbian border against human trafficking.
