The UN mission published a report, which includes recommendations on the investigation of the murders during the protests in Maidan. The monitoring mission notes the absence of progress in the cases of murder of 43 people.
Among main obstacles, the UN mission emphasizes the deficit of judges in Ukraine and the law, which hinders the investigation of the murders of law enforcers. Due to it, the UN recommends Ukraine:
- to provide investigation of each and every murder committed during protests in Maidan;
- to change the procedure of proceedings in absentia, allowing the reconsideration of the court sentence after detention of the defendant;
- to abolish ‘law on immunity’;
- to provide the appearance before the court of the suspects and defendants releases from the custody.
As we reported, the State Investigation Bureau (SIB) will create a special Department for investigation of the ‘Maidan cases’. It also plans to hold meetings with the representatives of public organizations Homeland of Heavenly Hundred Heroes and Invictus Maidan – 18.02
