On 31 January the educational-practical seminar «Organization of work of special militia establishments in the sphere of guard and convoy of the detained and arrested persons» was held in the Zhytomir town militia precinct. The auditory included the deputy heads of district militia precincts, heads of the departments of public safety, heads of penitentiary establishments, senior inspectors of the OGP and the special personnel of the MRV of the Zhytomir oblast. The seminar was conducted under the direction of Valeriy Marchevskiy, the deputy head of the militia directorate of the Zhytomir oblast.
The militia officers extended their knowledge of normative-legal bases of Ukrainian and international legislation. In particular, the participants showed the great interest to the report of the guests of the seminar: Viktor Bondar, the head of the board of the oblast branch of «The international union of human rights – Ukrainian section», and Alla Mukshimenko, the head of the Center of rendering the legal aid to citizens «Pubic protector of human rights» at the Foundation of Regional Initiatives (Kyiv), who told about the main principles of ombudspersons work. Ms. Mukshimenko answered the questions connected with the authorities and functions of the ombudsperson and with the peculiarities of the European Convention against torture and cruel treatment.
Representatives of the community and law-enforcing organs were mutually satisfied with the dialog. It is well that the invitation of the lecturers was initiated by representatives of militia. This gives the hope for the further cooperation in the sphere of human rights protection, especially taking into account the fact that the Zhytomir oblast branch of «The international union of human rights» takes part in the project «Prevention of torture and cruel treatment in Ukraine», realized on the all-Ukrainian level by the Kharkov group for human rights protection.
