BRUSSELS, Feb 21 (KUNA) -- The Human Rights organization Amnesty International Thursday urged the European Union to put pressure on Ukraine to meet its Human Rights commitments.
The call was made ahead of the EU-Ukraine summit meeting in Brussels next Monday.
"Ukraine wants to improve its relationship with the EU, which must press Ukraine to deliver on its 2009 pledges," said Nicholas Beger of Amnesty International's EU office.
"Respect for human rights is fundamental to EU law and also to countries which seek closer links with the Union. There can be no compromise," he said in a press statement.
Amnesty said there are continuing allegations of mistreatment in police detention and impunity for the police involved. The mistreatment includes beatings, sexual assault, and torture.(end) nk.wsa KUNA 211224 Feb 13NNNN
