Back Council of Europe anti-torture Committee publishes report on Ukraine

The Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) published today the report on its September 2014 ad hoc visit to Correctional Colonies Nos. 25 and 100 in the Kharkiv area of Ukraine. The report also reviews the measures taken to investigate ill-treatment of detained persons by law enforcement officials during the Maidan events in Kyiv, and the situation of persons detained in the context of ongoing “anti-terrorism” operations.

In addition to this report, the CPT has published the Ukrainian Government’s response to the preliminary observations made during the September 2014 visit (published in January 2015).

These documents have been made public under an automatic publication procedure introduced by the Ukrainian authorities in 2014. According to this procedure, all documents related to CPT visits shall be published automatically, unless the Ukrainian authorities submit within one month a request to postpone (for a period of up to six months) the publication of the document concerned.
