Montenegro: Police must cooperate with criminal investigations into use of excessive force and ill-treatment of protestors
Amnesty International is calling on the Minister of Interior to ensure that law enforcement officers, including police commanders and the Anti-Terrorist Unit, fully cooperate with criminal investigations into allegations of ill-treatment and the excessive use of force during public demonstrations in the capital, Podgorica, in October 2015. At least 26 people, including some by-standers are known to have sought medical treatment after sustaining injuries on 24 October. Another four were injured on 17 October. Their injuries included severe bruising as a result of beatings by law enforcement officers, or injuries sustained as a result of tear gas, rubber bullets and other less-lethal weapons deployed by the police.
