OHCHR Urges National Police To Investigate Publication Of Personal Data Of Journalists And Activists By Myrotvorets Website

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights urges the National Police of Ukraine to investigate publication of personal data of some journalists and activists of some non-government organizations by the Myrotvorets [Peacemaker] website.

This is said in a report of OHCHR on human rights situation in Ukraine for May 16 - August 15, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The report reads that the National Police opened a criminal case against the website on July 7.

The OHCHR welcomes the step and urges the National Police and the Ukrainian authorities to take efforts to remove the data from the website.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, in July, police closed the criminal proceedings that were filed against Former Deputy Minister of Information Policy Tetiana Popova on suspicion of publishing journalists' personal data on the Myrotvorets website.

The website published the personal data of media representatives accredited in the so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" and "Luhansk People's Republic" and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in May 2016.
