These cases cover issues of prosecutorial independence (Lutsenko group), prevention of ill-treatment (Kaverzin/Afanasyev group) and conditions of detention (Sukachov group).

The visit allowed for in-depth bilateral exchanges on the mechanism of supervision of the execution of judgments, the Committee of Ministers’ relevant decisions, as well as best practices regarding the improvement of detention conditions, notably the creation of specialised detention facilities for persons subject to extradition procedures, and international cooperation with specialised authorities of other member states in cases of universal jurisdiction in criminal proceedings.
