Kyiv/Kharkiv – The commissioner for human rights, Nina Karpachova, has stated that she had received a proposal to enter the party list of the Regional Party to run for the parliamentary elections in autumn 2012.
She said that the Regions Party has made this proposal to her recently.
Karpachova stressed that she always paid attention to notorious cases, in which rights of Ukrainians on trial or convicted citizens were violated.
"I protected rights of detainees in 2006, when those were Borys Kolesnikov and Yevhen Kushnariov. [Leader of the Regions Party parliamentary faction Oleksandr] Yefremov had no questions at that time. And they did not have questions until recent time. I am carrying out my mission and my oath, which I took in the parliament. So, let me fulfill it according to the legislation," the ombudsman said.
