The detainee’s daughter applied to the Human Rights Defender requesting for the assistance in organizing her father’s proper medical care in the penitentiary institution.
The applicant informed the Defender’s representatives that her father had a number of health problems and underwent a surgery, however he has a new health problem risen while being in the penitentiary institution and no measures were undertaken to clarify the reasons of the problem.
An investigation was initiated at the Defender’s Office with regard to the raised issue and an official letter was addressed to the Penitentiary Service of the Ministry of Justice.
As a result, the detainee was transferred to his preferred medical centre, where necessary medical examinations were organized and he underwent a surgery. Afterwards he was transferred to the “Prisoner Hospital” for the postoperative period.
The penitentiary institution informed the Defender that the person is under the constant supervision of the medical personnel.
