Anti-torture committee on Montenegro: Despite some progress, ill-treatment remains a problem and must be addressed

Despite some overall improvement in the treatment of persons detained by the police in Montenegro, ill-treatment still appears widely spread and must be tackled through stricter recruitment, better training and improved oversight. In prisons, too, allegations of ill-treatment persist; the practices of fixation of inmates and locking up remand prisoners in their cells for 23 hours a day for months and years continue and must be stopped. In psychiatric hospitals visited, despite the generally positive atmosphere, chronic overcrowding and prolonged prescription of benzodiazepines to patients was observed. These are key finding of the new report published today by the Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) on its periodic visit to Montenegro, which took place from 9 to 16 October 2017, together with the response of the authorities.
