The report of the International Advisory Panel on its review of the investigations into the tragic events in Odesa of May 2014 has been published and presented in Kyiv today. The Panel has found that the investigations have failed to satisfy the requirements of the European Convention of Human Rights.

The clashes in the centre of Odesa and the fire in the Trade Union Building on 2 May 2014 resulted in 48 deaths and injuries to several hundreds of persons.

The Ukrainian authorities initiated three investigations. The first investigation covers the conduct of the police on 2 May 2014 and the release of detainees on 4 May 2014 after protesters attacked the local police station. The second investigation focuses on the mass disorder in the city centre, and the fire in the Trade Union Building. The third one investigates the conduct of the State Emergency Service (SES) staff during the fire. (more...)
