Protection of the rights of detainees and prisoners

From the very beginning the Commissioner draws much attention to the protection of rights of the arrested and detained persons and prisoners as one of the various marginalized groups of population.  

 So, as one of the sensitive categories of population the significance of the protection of such persons must be always taken into consideration. Getting succeed in their re-integration to the society depends not only on the level of ensuring their rights, but also on the compliance of restrictions imposed on them with national by-laws and international legal norms.

The main purpose of the arrest or detention under custody is to ensure the execution of necessary criminal proceedings. Therefore, in order to effectively ensure the rights of the arrested and detained persons, to monitor the treatment and general custody conditions of them, as well as to check the documents confirming the lawfulness of their detention, the Commissioner carries out comprehensive activity in capacity as a national preventive mechanism.
