EU accuses Kiev of torture |

Kiev should "carry out a prompt, independent, thorough and comprehensive inquiry from the central level into how Colonies Nos. 25 and 100 [in Kharkiv] function," the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) said in a report

The report follows a visit by a CPT delegation to Ukraine on September 9-16, 2014.

"The delegation urges the Ukrainian authorities to take appropriate measures to ensure that prisoners in the two aforementioned Colonies are not subjected to any retaliation for having spoken with the delegation," the document said.

The delegation noted that "the situation has not improved at all in Colonies Nos. 25 and 100 since the previous visits to the establishments (in 2012 to Colony No. 25 and in 2005 to Colony No. 100)."

"Although instances of torture did not appear to be widespread, the delegation gained the distinct impression that the two establishments were managed through a system of intimidation and violence and that physical ill-treatment was used as a tool to maintain internal order. There was a widespread perception among prisoners that any disobedient behavior would be immediately sanctioned with severe corporal punishment," the report said.
