Ukraine: Stop Intimidating Police Beating Victims | Human Rights Watch

Moscow – Ukrainian authorities have tried to pressure and intimidate people who alleged being beaten by police during recent protests in Kiev, Human Rights Watch said today in a letter to Ukraine’s prosecutor general. In some beating cases the authorities failed to move investigations forward.On November 30 and December 1, 2013, riot police severely beat numerous peaceful protesters in Kiev, causing head injuries in several cases. Seven protesters Human Rights Watch interviewed credibly alleged that law enforcement officials investigating the incidents had pressured and intimidated them.“Ukrainian authorities pledged to investigate police violence, but they are intimidating those coming forward with allegations of police abuse,” said Yulia Gorbunova, Ukraine researcher at Human Rights Watch. “The authorities are pressuring the very people whose trust is needed if they are going to conduct serious investigations.”
