Ukraine: Briefing for the Committee against Torture on Ukraine
In this briefing, Amnesty International takes the opportunity to raise some concerns in relation to the implementation of the Convention against Torture in Ukraine. In particular, deportations to Uzbekistan of members of the Uzbek opposition; continued allegations that police torture detainees to extract confessions; failure to carry out thorough investigations into allegations of ill-treatment; the lack of clarity about when a detained person can exercise his right to access to a lawyer; overcrowding and a high incidence of tuberculosis in pre-trial detention centres continues to be a problem.
