Far from a due process

Rebels and alike, who take government powers in the area they control, are sometimes behind some of the worst human rights abuses. Recently we have been reached by news from eastern Ukraine, where a man is sentenced to death by firing squad in a “trial” far from a due process. While this lack of due process must be condemned and seen as a crime itself, the shocking truth is that in many other countries (including western democracies), some suspects may not even get a trial at all.
