On March 14, 2018 the residents of the Donauwörth refugee isolation camp experienced a brutal police raid as a follow-up action to the previous night's police presence in the camp. Around 200 fully armed officers, including riot police, invaded the camp with dogs. 32 Gambian refugees were taken into custody with massive brutality. Two were released on the same day while the other 30 were isolated in pre-trial custody for about two months. Police stigmatised then as "rioters" and "ringleaders", falsely accusing them of having stopped a deportation of a camp resident to Italy in the night before the raid. In this interview the activist David Jassey, former member of the Gambian Integration Committee in Donauwörth, tells his analysis of the attack.
