The CPT publishes report on Sweden

The main objective of the visit was to review the measures taken by the Swedish authorities in response to the recommendations made by the Committee after previous visits. For this purpose, the delegation visited six police detention facilities (in Avesta, Malmö, Stockholm – Norrmalm, Södermalm and Solna – and Ystad), two migration detention centres (in Åstorp and Ljungbyhed), three remand prisons (in Helsingborg, Trelleborg and Ystad, the first two mainly accommodating remand prisoners subjected to court-imposed restrictions on association and contact with the outside world), three psychiatric establishments (one for civil involuntary patients – North Stockholm Psychiatric Clinic – and regional forensic clinics in Karsudden and Sala) and two so-called LVU/LSU establishments for young persons (Bärby Home for Young Persons in Uppsala and Sundbo Home for Young Persons in Fagersta).

The main findings and conclusions of the CPT are set out in the executive summary of the report.

The report has been made public under an automatic publication procedure introduced by the Swedish authorities in 2016.
