They include incidents of police violence against civilians, men and women, posing no apparent threat, as well as against journalists.
The material reviewed by BIRN shows that most incidents of police brutality on Tuesday and Wednesday occurred far from the entrance to the parliament, as police chased down protesters following clashes that broke out when protesters tried to storm the assembly.
The authorities deployed teargas and mounted police to disperse the protesters, some of whom lobbed rocks and petrol bombs at the Gendarmerie units securing the parliament.
Members of the Gendarmerie beat people on Terazije, some 800 meters from the parliament where there was no organised protest, only protesters running from police. On the other side of the assembly, police dispersed protesters towards Tasmajdan park, firing teargas. Video and photos show police chasing and beating people all the way to the Faculty of Law and beyond, up to some two kilometres from the parliament itself.
The footage shows that police did not only target those involved in direct clashes but others too who showed no sign of using violence.
