The International Advisory Panel (“the Panel” and “IAP”) was constituted by the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Thorbjørn Jagland, to oversee that the investigations into the violent incidents which took place in Ukraine from 30 November 2013 onwards met all the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights and the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights.

Back Investigation of the Odesa tragedy

International Advisory Panel updates on its review work

As the first anniversary of the tragic events in Odesa of 2 May 2014 approaches, the International Advisory Panel made a statement today to provide an overview of its work regarding the investigations by the domestic authorities.

The International Advisory Panel was set up by the Secretary General of the Council of Europe with the initial mandate of reviewing the investigation into the violent incidents during the Maidan demonstrations in Kyiv. In September 2014, in a letter sent to the Secretary General, the Ukrainian government confirmed its acceptance that the violent events of 2 May 2014 in Odesa should also be covered by the Panel’s mandate.

On 15 September 2014, the Panel said that it would begin its review of the authorities’ investigations into the events in Odesa as soon as its Maidan-related work had reached an advanced stage of completion. This happened on the 31st of March 2015, when the Panel delivered its report on its review of the investigations into the Maidan events. (more...)
