Prison of BënçaTepelena


The High Security Prison of Bença in Tepelena does represent an old facility from the early '70s dedicated investigations procedures during the communist regime.The prison is positioned in a place where wheather conditions are difficult and the road infrastructure is appalling. The capacity of this prison is 56, although any time visited showed overcrowding and very difficult material condititions. the access to health services have been obsolent and medical staff was difficult to be maintained in these extreme conditions.

ARCT has constantly reccomending to close this institution, as it does not provide any standards with regards to human treatment and dignity for the inmates.
