Fatmir Memedov - I continued because I believed in justice

15 February 2023

Fatmir remembers the day clearly, 10 years ago, when he was in a shop buying diapers for his baby and was brutally attacked by police officers for no reason. The Romani man from North Macedonia, was beaten by the police and subjected to racist abuse as they carried out a police raid on the Roma-majority area where he lived. His legal fight was only just beginning, however. In this video, Fatmir Memedov and his lawyer Keti Jovanova describe how an innocent man can fall victim to a racist criminal justice system, and how he fought for justice.
