“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

Lutkovska said the authorities need to work with law enforcement

torture in the law enforcement agencies.

Lutkovska also pointed out that judges should stop accepting evidence obtained through torture.
