“We will not solve the problem by creating only one agency to
investigate torture. There needs to be a comprehensive approach,”
Lutkovska told a round-table meeting titled the Unavoidability of
Punishment in the Context of the New Criminal Procedure Code held in
Kyiv on Oct. 11.
Lutkovska said the authorities need to work with law enforcement
agencies and courts before creating a body to investigate reports of
torture in the law enforcement agencies.
Lutkovska also pointed out that judges should stop accepting evidence obtained through torture.
