with the number plate covered came ... They [the guards] did not say a word, they twisted my arms, pushed me down on the ground, hooded my head with

my sweater, searched my body. They pulled me up and hooded my whole body in a plastic bag, and then put me in the vehicle ... They beat me with

something like a leather belt on my thigh ... A lash follows a question."
