Amnesty International is urging the Ukrainian Parliament to address the issues raised in this letter and start fulfilling its human rights obligations. In Ukraine torture and ill-treatment remains widespread; failings in the criminal justice system lead to lengthy periods of pre-trial detention and refugees and asylum-seekers risk detention and forcible return. Also, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are not protected from discrimination, and could even face prosecution for exercising their right to free expression.
