Rights of Persons Deprived of Liberty in Serbian Prison System
The report “Rights of Persons Deprived of Liberty in Serbian Prison System” was written in the scope of „Building free of torture and impunity societies in the Western Balkans“ project.
The project „Building free of torture and impunity societies in the Western Balkans“ was implemented by the leading partner – the Youth Initiative for Human Rights Montenegro ((YIHRCG) member of the Civic Alliance)) and their partners: the Youth Initiative for Human Rights Serbia (YIHRSR), Center for Rehabilitation from traumatism and torture from Albania (ARCT) and the International Council for the rehabilitation of torture victims from Denmark.
The aim of the project is to contribute to a society without torture through civil society activities aimed against abuse and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and all of that with the intention to eliminate (or reduce to a minimum) the torture of persons deprived of liberty in Montenegro, Serbia and Albania.
The Initiative’s Monitoring team conducted 19 visits in 14 different prisons during this period of 30 months, and 5 of the prisons were visited twice (Correctional institute Ćuprija, County jail Zrenjanin, County jail Kragujevac, County jail Čačak and County jail Pančevo) in order to monitor the implementation of recommendations made during the previous visit as well as to record the changes in the conditions and treatment in the institution in the period between the two visits.
