The applicant alleged that on the evening of 26 December 1998, seven policemen burst into her house, one of whom immediately hit her in the face. She was then hit again by the same police officer when she asked for a search warrant and for the presence of civilian witnesses. After the men refused to leave, she ran out of the house and shouted for help.
