Human rights in places of detention. How Poland is implementing into practice the recommendations of the international bodies for the prevention of torture (CPT and SPT)

Date:

National Mechanism for the Prevention of Torture visited some places of detention that had been visited by the SPT and CPT delegations during their last periodic visits (in 2017 by the CPT and in 2018 by the SPT). The NMPT visits were thematic ones and focused on verifying the recommendations of the monitoring bodies.

As a result of the NMPT works, thematic report "Human rights in places of detention. How Poland is implementing into practice the recommendations of the international bodies for the prevention of torture (CPT and SPT)" has been drawn up. The report will help the relevant authorities to take effective measures towards the implementation of the CPT and SPT recommendations (including those requiring legislative changes), will significantly contribute to the public discussion in the area of human rights protection in places of deprivation of liberty and will constitute valuable educational and training material.
