Respect of human rights and freedoms, which are contained in the basic international legal acts, represents a basic criterion which is based on the existence of today's modern state and the rule of law in it. Republic of Macedonia as a modern state, although relatively young, in its existence as an independent state is oriented and aims towards joining the European family of democratic states in the legal frame of the European Union. For this reason, the Republic of Macedonia is in the process of adjusting its domestic law under European law and in this sense the legal norms of human rights and freedoms are implemented in domestic law as a condition sine gua non (essential requirement without it cannot be possible) to achieve that historic goal. However, the right does not exist only through the existence of legal norms, but even more through the remedies for their protection in terms of the maxim ubi jus ibi remidium (where there is low there is a cure). Freedoms and human rights standards must be respected and included in all spheres of everyday human life in the country and it needs to promote and guarantee as its primary obligation to the citizen. The state need to provide instruments and mechanisms for their protection, especially where they are sensitive and most susceptible to injury and it is in police procedure. This master work examines the theme of protection of human rights and freedoms in police procedures when they are abused by police officers when they are taking official actions using police powers in the police work. An analysis and processing of reported abuses and protection of freedoms and rights was done from 2004 to 2010, in the frame of the Project for Protection of Human Rights implemented by a coalition of nongovernmental organizations on the territory of Macedonia.
