The members of Ombudsman’s NPM group conducted visit to Gobustan prison

Office of Ombudsman, Press-release N 1515-2444/181-11, 30.07.2011
According to the instructions of the Commissioner for Human Rights the members of Ombudsman’s NPM group conducted repeated visit to Gobustan prison.
It should be noted a number of violation was found during previous visit to the institution, necessary recommendations were given to the administration of the facility for their elimination, at the same time the Commissioner addressed to the Minister of Justice in this regard. It should be noted the prison ex-chief and his deputies were dismissed from their posts because of the offences they had committed.
The goal of the last visit was to learn the situation of implementation of the recommendations, imprisonment conditions of inmates in hot weather, and their treatment.
The visiting team had private conversations with about 40 inmates, as well as with persons subjected to life long imprisonment, learned imprisonment conditions, explained them their rights.
Most of the prisoners noted the situation in the facility and their treatment positively changed after the substitution of the administration.
At the same time it should be noted some of the inmates stressed their concern about their correspondence. Thus, they noted that their correspondence was sent to the relevant bodies after they had been examined. The visiting team gave recommendations to the facility administration for elimination of the shortcomings in this regard.
Other issue of concern was that the medical service didn’t meet the standards. It should be noted as a head of NPM group Elmira Suleymanova addressed the Ministry of Justice several times in this regard, but during the visit it was found that the situation had not been changed.
The prisoners also noted the cells were very hot because of the weather. The administration of the prison was addressed in this regard.
Later on, the members of NPM group inspected punishment cell, and talked to each eight persons detained there. Those persons didn’t complain about imprisonment conditions and treatment.
It was determined that though the cells were reconstructed by the newly appointed chief, the size of the cells didn’t meet the standards.
A number of cells of the prison also were inspected, conversations were held with life long prisoners, and other prisoners. They didn’t complain about the treatment.
The visiting team appreciated the reconstruction work, also the fact that special means and handicaps weren’t used against prisoners in 2011. They also gave necessary recommendations for elimination of a number of shortcomings, and noted they would conduct repeated visit to the facility.
The Ministry of Justice was addressed by the Ombudsman for improving of the imprisonment conditions and service rendered to inmates in the facility.
