UNTV goes to Vojvodina in Serbia to expose the forcible seizure of Krajina Serb refugees by Yugoslav police in the middle of the night. The men are sent to fight in the Bosnian Serb Army.
Opens with scenes of refugees in Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia. This place has become infamous in Croatian history as a prison camp for Croatians in the 1991 war. Now, Serb refugees from the Krajina have been forced from their beds to rejoin the war. Interviews with refugees reveal that the young men have been gathered by the police and taken from their families in the middle of the night, while they were asleep in the sports hall here. They say that the police took the men out and beat them with their batons before putting them on buses.
In Belgrade, Slobodan Jarčević, an advisor to Krajina Serb leader Milan Martić, continues to talk of war. He says that "the Krajina Serb Army will fight the occupier until he is expelled or the Army is completely defeated."
However, the refugees from the Krajina are less keen to continued fighting. Shots of the hands of refugees reaching up to the van's doors, grasping for fruit. In interviews the refugees make it clear that they have already given everything to the army in Krajina. They feel that now even their children have been taken away by the Bosnian Serb Army to fight.
Roy Head, Series Editor of UNTV, says to the camera that sending refugees back to a place where they are in danger is a "blatant violation" of the 1951 Geneva Convention and Serbian authorities must be held responsible.
Scrolling script: This is not the first time this has happened. Men were also forced to go to the frontline after the Croatian offensive in West Slavonia.
