The blog Bordermonitoring Bulgaria reported testimonies from exiled of violence during pushbacks operations at the border (pushback of persons without examining their situation and their possible application for protection is in itself illegal), including children and pregnant women. Also testimonies on violence in detention centers.

Human Rights Watch also recently published a report on what it calls “containment plan”, using both the pushbacks at the border and confinement in detention to deter and dissuade asylum seekers and migrants, especially from Syria.
