The Group of Observers Conducting Public Monitoring of Penitentiary Institutions and Bodies of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia shared their thoughts on the protection of human rights and detected violation cases in Armenian prisons in 2014.
Ruben Sargsyan, Head of the Monitoring Group, pointed out the three-level system of parole, overcrowding and medical services as main problems in Armenian prisons.
“We are getting more and more alerts. Anyway, there is a positive shift. Lately the Ministry of Justice and Department have been acting more transparently,” said Sargsyan.
