The Commissioner for human rights lawyer spoke about the case against the Ukrainian prisoners of war
KIEV. April 3. UNN. Yesterday, the lawyer Nikolai Polozov, protecting the rights of Crimean Tatars and prisoners of war sailors in the course of yesterday’s working meeting with the Council of Europe Commissioner for human rights, Dunja Mijatovic, told her about the case against the prisoners of war of Ukrainian sailors. About this Polozov said on his page on Facebook, reports UNN.
“During yesterday’s working meeting with the Council of Europe Commissioner for human rights, Dunja Mijatovic, I told her in detail about the case against the prisoners of war of Ukrainian sailors. I specifically drew the attention of the Commissioner for the special status of seamen, protected by the III Geneva Convention “prisoner of war” and the PACE resolution 2259 (2019), and report of the OHCHR on human rights that this status is confirmed” — wrote Polozov.
He also noted that today Dunja Mijatovic, together with Russian Ombudsman Tatiana Moskalkova, visited prisoners in the SIZO “Lefortovo”.
“In the coming days, our attorneys will ask the prisoners who of them came to see the Commissioner and the Ombudsman and what they communicated. I think, in the course of the meeting with the prisoners of war Dunja Mijatovic could reliably see and make sure that the conditions of detention of prisoners in Lefortovo violate the provisions of the Convention, in particular articles 12, 40, 60, 76, 95, 97 and a number of other articles,” – said Polozov.
Recall, the Ukrainian prisoner of war seaman Vasiliy Soroka, who was operated on in Russia on March 18, has gone on the amendment.
