MOSCOW, July 25 /TASS/. A group of Ukraine’s Security Service brass may be arrested soon for complicity to torture, Ukraine’s Chief Prosecutor Yuri Lutsenko said.
"Judging from last week reports, a group of Ukraine’s Security Service employees is going to be arrested soon because of complicity to torture," Ukraine’s Public TV quoted Lutsenko as saying.
According to the chief prosecutor, high-ranking security service employees shot at people and inflicted heavy bodily harm in the process of extortion.
On July 21, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch told Ukraine’s Chief Military Prosecutor Anatoly Matios that Ukraine’s Security Service had violated human rights such as forcible disappearance of people; violation of the rights of people in custody and manifestations of inhumane treatment of prisoners.
