During this meeting, the Committee adopted the reports on its periodic visits to the Slovak Republic (March 2018) and Norway (May/June 2018), and on its ad hoc visits to Lithuania (April 2018), Turkey (April 2018) and the Republic of Moldova (June 2018), as well as on the monitoring of a return flight to Afghanistan organised by Germany (August 2018). These reports will be sent in due course to the respective authorities. In accordance with Article 11, paragraph 2, of the ECPT, the CPT’s reports and the government responses are published only at the request of the authorities (on a case-by-case basis or through a so-called automatic publication procedure).
The CPT also heard oral reports on recent visits carried out between July and October 2018, and prepared future visits. Other issues examined included the states’ responses to previous visit reports.
The Committee also considered ongoing intergovernmental activities of the Council of Europe on matters within the CPT’s mandate.
During the meeting, an exchange of views took place between the CPT and the Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Dunja Mijatović, on various topics of common interest.
