Bulgarian TV showed video footage three refugees with their hands tied behind their backs and a group of vigilantes demanding that the three return to Turkey.
The refugees could be seen with their hands tied behind their back with zip-ties with one man telling the group, “No Bulgaria. Go back to Turkey”.
The video appears to have been shot near the Bulgaria-Turkey border and was originally uploaded to social media under the title “DETENTION OF MIGRANTS AND RETURN TO TURKEY”.
The vigilante group has chosen to remain anonymous. Under Bulgarian law, unlawful detention of any person is punishable by up to six years in prison.
