on social media

On August 6, the Verkhovna Rada human rights commissioner received a report about the beating of a citizen during his detention in Kyiv’s pre-trial detention center. According to the UNHCR, Abuev has the status of UNHCR mandate refugee, and the European Court of Human Rights applied Rule 39 with respect to him, according to which Ukraine is forbidden to return Abuev to his country of origin.

On behalf of Lutkovska, employees of the department on the implementation of the national preventive mechanism at the ombudsperson’s secretariat started the checks and found that on August 3, Abuev was taken to Kyiv City Clinical Emergency Hospital with bodily injuries.

On August 7, the department’s employees visited the refugee in a special ward for the detention of prisoners. During questioning, he said that he had sustained bodily injuries after being beaten by unknown individuals in Kyiv’s detention center and that he did not remember the details of what happened.
