Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia: "We shall not tolerate ill-treatment" . Zero tolerance for impunity too?
Amnesty International has for several years expressed its concerns about continued allegations of police ill-treatment and torture in Macedonia. The organization is seriously concerned that the police appear unwilling to thoroughly investigate reports of torture and ill-treatment, as illustrated in cases in this report, and fail to bring those responsible to justice. This document considers methods and practices; Macedonian constitution and legislation; international standards; and concludes with recommendations.
