В Иркутске у главы фонда «Сибирь без пыток» прошел очередной обыск

Only a few days after searches in premises of the NGO Siberia without Torture in Irkutsk, the NGO is undergoing new searches by the police in the apartment where the head of the NGO Sviatolslav Khromenkov and his wife, psychologist at the NGO, live. According to Sviatoslav Khromenkov, these acts of intimidation and threats are directly linked to the human rights work of Siberia without Torture for combating torture.

Силовики ворвались в квартиру иркутского правозащитника и провели в ней обыск | Коалиция в поддержку правозащитников

Yesterday, 12 December, the premises of the main human rights organisation in Siberia were searched by the police. This organization, based in Irkustk, has distinguished itself by its active fight against torture. Siberia Without Torture is particularly under pressure because it uncovered the torture of a woman in 2016 in a police station, which led to criminal proceedings.

The search was conducted under the pretext of an investigation for fraud involving a lawyer who does not belong to the organization.

According to Svyatoslav Khromenkov, head of the organization, the search lasted almost twelve hours and ended at two o'clock in the morning, local time. He noted that they had not been given a search warrant, but several computer cases and laptops had been taken from the apartment. In addition, the investigators refused to provide a copy of the search report. He also explained that the police threatened his mother with criminal proceedings for violence against law enforcement officials for refusing, in the absence of a valid warrant, to allow them to enter the office.

In view of its modus operandi and the fact that it is conducted by services closely linked to the criminal proceedings initiated by Siberia without torture, this police operation appears as an act of intimidation, intended to hinder the essential action that this organization is taking to combat torture in places of detention.

19/11/2019

Yesterday, the Court ordered the release of Sergei Cosovan, a seriously sick person held in penitentiary no. 16.
The NGO Promo-LEX has been drawing the attention of authorities for the last two years on this case that has revealed several systemic problems, and in particular:
🛑 the absence of protective measures applicable to convicted persons suffering from serious diseases;
🛑 the flawed organization of medical care in the penitentiary system.

🔊‼️ Ieri, instanța a dispus eliberarea lui Cosovan Serghei, o persoană grav bolnavă deținută în Penitenciarul nr. 16.
ℹ️ Promo-LEX timp de doi ani atrage atenția autorităților asupra acestui caz care a scos la iveală mai multe probleme de sistem, și în special:
🛑 discriminarea persoanelor arestate preventiv în partea ce ține de posibilitatea de a beneficia de măsurile de protecție aplicabile persoanelor condamnate care suferă de boli grave;
🛑 organizarea defectuoasă a serviciului medical în sistemul penitenciar. Multe din acest sistem închis nu se scot la iveală.
Se ascund multe probleme grave după pereții acestui sistem. Iese la iveală și se începe a discuta doar atunci, când un deținut moare sau când mai apare vreun raport a unor instituții internaționale să ne zică: că suntem printre primii la capitolul ”decese în Penitenciare”.

➡️ Mulțumim tuturor care nu au fost indiferenți de soarta acestei persoane și au sesizat atenția autorităților atât asupra cazului individual, cât și asupra unor probleme grave din sistem EPLN - European Prison Litigation Network; European Union in the Republic of Moldova; Olga Beinaroviča; OMCT; Amnesty International; Amnesty International Moldova; Consiliul pentru egalitate - Совет по равенству - Equality Council Oficiul Avocatului Poporului; Alexandru Zubco, jurnaliștilor NewsMaker.md, Alexandra Batanova, Надежда Андреевна, Marina Shupac, TV8.MD, Anticoruptie.md, Julieta Saviţchi și altor, care au reflectat acest caz, ne-au ajutat astfel să aducem în vizorul autorităților problemele sistemice, probleme care nu sunt doar ale lui Cosovan Serghei, ci a întregului sistem penitenciar.

‼️ Deținuții au aceleași drepturi ca orice altă persoană. Iar Guvernul Republicii Moldova este obligat să revizuiască strategiile și politicile în domeniu pentru a asigura aceste drepturi.

A lawsuit to halt solitary confinement in Florida prisons just got a boost in court

Florida - Officials with the state Department of Corrections have long defended their agency against criticism of solitary confinement simply by saying they don’t use it. Instead, the officials refer to their practices as “restrictive housing,” to include administrative and disciplinary confinement, as well as “close management” and “maximum management.”

For the purposes of a lawsuit aiming to halt all varieties of confinement in Florida prisons, a federal judge in the U.S. Northern District of Florida last week decided those terms were distinctions without a difference.

Across the country, a growing consensus of medical and mental health professionals have equated placing prisoners in solitary confinement to torture.

Mercredi 23 octobre - Conférence: "Prisons : quelles perspectives de renforcement des droits procéduraux?".

A l’occasion de la Journée européenne des avocats, consacrée cette année à l’aide juridictionnelle et l’accès à l’avocat des personnes en détention, Avocats.be et ses partenaires organisent une conférence sur les droits procéduraux des personnes détenues.

La Cour européenne des droits de l’homme a, au fil de sa jurisprudence, élaboré un véritable statut juridique du détenu. Elle a assorti les droits ainsi reconnus de garanties procédurales. Pourtant, le quotidien carcéral demeure émaillé de multiples atteintes aux droits fondamentaux ; les recours des détenus peinent à provoquer l’intervention d’un juge en temps utile. Même le recours à la procédure de l’arrêt pilote/quasi-pilote, comme ce fut le cas dans les arrêts Vasilescu et Bamouhammad rendus contre la Belgique peinent à éliminer les problèmes systémiques constatée...

#Russia #torture

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has just released its decision on the case of Buntov v. Russia. With regard to Public Monitoring Commissions, following the joint communication we submitted jointly with Russian partners, the Committee "expressed concern at the information submitted regarding the various challenges faced by them, inviting the authorities to comment on the issues raised and to inform the Committee of the measures planned and taken with the aim of resolving them".

The tone of this position differs from that formulated at the June meeting (in the context of the examination of the Ananyev and other cases), when the Committee merely requested information on the representativeness of the Public Monitoring Commissions (PMC), the confidentiality of exchange and the results of the PMC's visits, without expressing any assessment of their dysfunctioning. This time, while observing the usual diplomatic language, the Committee of Ministers stressed the importance of the PMCs in preventing torture and began to put pressure on the authorities.

The secretariat's analysis is more vigorous. It concludes that the authorities should therefore be urged to ensure that members of the PMC are recruited on the basis of their competence and independence in a transparent manner and that their visits take place under conditions appropriate to their role.

In this context, it is crucial that the other bodies of the Council of Europe, in particular the Commissioner for Human Rights and the Parliamentary Assembly, as well as the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, take a firm and prompt position on this subject.

#ОНК #пытки

Комитет Министров при Совета Европы только что опубликовал свое решение по делу Бунтов против России. Что касается ОНК, после меморандума, представленного совместно с российскими партнерами, Комитет выражает свою "озабоченность в связи с представленной информацией о различных проблемах, с которыми они сталкиваются, предлагает властям высказать замечания по затронутым вопросам и проинформировать Комитет о предусмотренных и принятых мерах по их решению“.

Тон этой позиции отличается от того, который был сформулирован на июньском заседании (в контексте рассмотрения Ананьева и других дел), когда Комитет просто запросил информацию о репрезентативности ОНК, конфиденциальности общения и результатах посещений ОНК, не выражая никакой оценки их дисфункции. В этот раз cоблюдая обычные дипломатические формулировки, Комитет Министров подчеркнул важную роль ОНК в предотвращении пыток и начинает оказывать давление на власти.

Анализ, проведенный секретариатом, носит более энергичный характер. В этой связи он приходит к выводу, что следует призвать российские власти обеспечить осуществление набора членов ОНК на основе их компетентности и независимости и прозрачным образом и условия посещения тюрем, соответствующие их роли.

В этом контексте крайне важно, чтобы другие органы Совета Европы, в частности Комиссар по правам человека и Парламентская ассамблея, а также Верховный комиссар ООН по правам человека заняли твердую и оперативную позицию по этому вопросу.
