 "Unified electronic database of detainees to be created in Ukraine," - National Police head

Head of the National Police of Ukraine Khatia Dekanoidze has announced the establishment of the Human Rights Directorate as part of the agency reform.

Censor.NET reports citing the National Police Communications Department.

The directorate will be in charge of pretrial detention facilities. Besides, the National Police will create a unified electronic database of detainees (custody records) in order to avoid abuses by employees of temporary detention facilities.

The custody records will contain information on medical treatment of detainees, the food they are provided with, and visits by lawyers.

The initiative of the National Police to create Human Rights Directorate was also commended by the Council of Europe. This step will obviously contribute to further implementation of reform in the agency, Dekanoidze said.
