On June 24, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Ivanovo Region Svetlana Shmeleva visited places of detention in the Kineshma District.

The Commissioner inspected the detention conditions of persons in Pretrial Detention Center No.2 (SIZO-2), where she familiarized herself with the work of the kitchen unit, the educational work room for minors, and the SIZO cells. Svetlana Shmeleva noted that in general the conditions of detention meet the legal requirements, however, many cells still need minor repairs.

Then the Commissioner together with chairperson of the Public Monitoring Commission Galina Shtepa, other PMC members and regional media representatives visited the correctional center at Penal Colony No. 3 (IK-3), which was opened this year. Persons sentenced to correctional measures are held there.

After that, the Commissioner inspected correctional institutions No. 3 and No. 4. In both colonies, personal receptions of citizens were held.

Clarifications were given to all the applicants; some convicts were asked to send written complaints to the ombudsman.
