Council of Europe demands improvement of conditions in Idrizovo and Shutka prisons


North Macedonia needs to establish a professional prison service, effective oversight of prison management and provide better conditions for detainees in Idrizovo and Skopje prisons, according to a report by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) for 2020, dedicated to the ad hoc visit of his delegation to the country.

“The ad hoc visit to North Macedonia in December focused on the treatment and prison conditions for people in the Idrizovo and Skopje prisons. The aim was also to assess the progress made since the Committee’s periodic visit in December 2019. The delegation also visited the police stations Bit Pazar, Gazi Baba, Karposh and Kisela Voda in Skopje,” reads the report of the Council of Europe’s committee.
