Law enforcers breached no law when detaining armed individuals at Ukraine's Kryvy Torets railway station
No violation of law has been in the actions of the law enforcement agents who recently detained armed men at the Kryvy Torets railway station in Ukraine's Donetsk region, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said.
"According to the information that I have received from the law enforcement agencies, no violations of law committed by law enforcers during the detention of people and seizing the arms they had on them against the regulation (it is prohibited to carry hunting weapons on the streets, especially in the ATO [special operation] zone, where all kinds of weapons, except for the ones carried by servicemen, are prohibited) have been detected so far," Lutsenko told a briefing conference in Kyiv on Tuesday.
However, Lutsenko promised that if somebody certified as the one sustaining bodily injuries or a journalist turns to him or some video evidence is presented, then a criminal case will certainly be opened and the actions of law enforcers will be checked for lawfulness.
It was reported earlier that law enforcers detained more than 40 individuals in the Donetsk region's Toretsk, Scherbynivka and Kurdiumivka on March 13. As of the morning of Tuesday, March 14, all of them were released.
