Director of NGO «Human Rights Vector» Valeriia Rybak participated in The International Conference on FAIR TREATMENT OF PERSONS IN POLICE CUSTODY, which was held in Germany, 16 and 17 October 2018. The Brandenburg University of Applied Police Sciences is hosting a conference.
The participation of representatives of the National Academy of Internal Affairs and the public sector was made possible through the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Mission in Ukraine.
In the last decades, the international community has introduced many instruments and institutions designed to ensure correct treatment of detainees, and, in particular, to implement and enforce the prohibition of torture. This conference analysed and evaluated these international activities and efforts, in order to provide an assessment of how far the world has come in preventing torture and other ill-treatment of persons in police custody. In workshops and plenary sessions, international experts and participants will share their experiences and discuss success stories and setbacks. They will develop visions and ways on how fair treatment of all persons in police custody may be ensured in a global perspective.
