Message Happy about the refusal of a number of obligations on human rights, for example, the increase in the period of preventive detention for up to 30 days may raise questions for the European court of human rights (ECHR), according to an international human rights organization Amnesty international.
on Thursday, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the message on the right of Ukraine to retreat from a number of international obligations to protect human rights in the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions in connection With the conduct of military operations. The foreign Ministry has been instructed to inform about it the UN Secretary General and Secretary General of the Council of Europe. Director and member of Executive Committee of Russian Association of international law Anatoly Kapustin have said before, that the limits cannot touch key fundamental rights, illegal criminal retribution and extrajudicial procedures.
The head of the Russian branch of Amnesty international Sergei Nikitin in explanation of the Last news explained that the appeal is informed about the process, which is called "derogate" (a partial repeal of the law).
He said that international law lays down the period of preventive detention within 72 hours, but that Kiev has to increase to 30 days.
"We can say that this thirty-day period is the failures of human rights, and We have no doubt that the European court of human rights, considering that is what the message will surely consider that the reasons for extending preventive detention, in reality, can not withstand the opponents," said Nikitin.
The Ukrainian Authorities refer to an emergency that threatens the life of the inhabitants, but the ECHR has ruled that 30 days is too long a period, He said.
"We believe it is unlikely that Ukraine will be able to supply derogation in regard to the main question - why we're all here - these 30 days preventive detention under arrest without judicial review," said Nikitin.
A much more serious problem is torture, drew the attention of the head of the Russian branch of the organization.
first, Amnesty international published a report about the facts of torture of prisoners in Ukraine, calling on the leadership of both parties to the conflict put an end to such lawlessness.
"This derogate does not change anything significantly about those issues that are voiced - the narrative is to derogate from their obligations regarding the right to life and prohibition of torture," says Nikitin.
He drew attention that the prohibition of torture is imprescriptible right: torture is prohibited absolutely everywhere, in all circumstances. The Ukrainian authorities are now required to pay attention to this problem, according to Amnesty.
"We stress that Ukraine needs to strengthen its efforts to eradicate torture and ill-treatment from its own forces and bring the perpetrators, which are recognized as such by the court, to justice," - said Nikitin.
first program Director of Human Rights Watch in Russia Tatyana Lokshina in explanation of the Last news said that the decree to derogate from a number of international legal obligations of Ukraine leader Petro Poroshenko adopted at the end of last year.
From the position of international law, this retreat is standard procedure in exceptional, emergency situations, She added.
The human rights activist stressed, because this retreat is not to be a total, allowed only a limited, balanced derogation from certain rights in a certain volume.
She added that, reporting to UN bodies, Kiev will explain exactly how and in which extent It departs from its international legal obligations
