The head of the presidential Council on human rights (HRC) Misha Fedotov said, in fact, that together with the Crimean Ombudsman, they will work to help the transfer of a Ukrainian from a colony in Simferopol, who would like to serve a sanction in his homeland, in fact that the Ukrainian side does not yet allocate consent.
On Saturday, the head of the presidential SEC visited the prison and the colony in Simferopol.
“Must say, I have a pretty appropriate emotion from this, actually what I beheld. It was haunted by principle necessary, actually that the material basis of these institutions is updated, and where already managed to carry out a mending, all corresponds to the European standards. But, unfortunately, the fix had to be arranged in the distance not everywhere,” — said Fedotov RIA Announcements subsequently visit correctional institutions.
Actually as for the claims of convicts, said the human rights activist, there were many, but they mostly wear a personal disposition. The head of the HRC said that, for example, met in the colony of the 1st convict, who is considered a native of Ukraine and would like to serve a sanction in the homeland, closer to the family.
“Unfortunately, the Ukrainian side does not agree to this yet. We agreed with the Commissioner for human rights in the Republic of Crimea, in fact that the common efforts we want to push the Ukrainian side to that, so they agreed to accept their own citizen,” — said Fedotov.
He also showed the positive practice existing in Crimea of filing applications for parole by convicts.
“We sent care, in fact that here in the Crimea there is a pretty good practice, when prisoners have a chance straight from the detention center to speak to the petition for parole, and these requests are satisfied by the courts. Such practices in other areas I have not yet seen”, – said the human rights activist.
