DOCUMENTATION:

ON MONITORING:

The monitoring team is comprised of lawyers, psychologists, medical doctors, psychiatrists, and journalists. Volunteers from the Law University, social sciences faculty, and international interns periodically participate in ARCT monitoring visits. Each visit has a number of elements applied in a standard way, as well as other ones implemented differently from institution to institution, where basic elements rely on material conditions, education, hygiene, violence, health care, discrimination and corruption.

A special attention was paid in drafting the Standard Operating Procedures in performing the monitoring visits. The SOP includes best practices for access to places of detention, planning and implementation of the visits, procedures for interviews with staff and detainees, qualitative and quantitative documentation of the findings, the report writing, report submission and follow-up of recommendations, methodology of approaching the prison, authorizations, etc.

As part of a national Human Rights Screening Instrument are more than 240 questionnaires and 50 interviews, used on case identification in police commissariats, pre-detention and prisons. Particular attention is given to those who have sent complaints of ill-treatment and/or called to the ARCT. Through such dynamic process the ARCT has opened more than 15 court cases of violence requiring damages for its clients/inmates, and won more than 6 of them: excessive use of power, extradition, amnesty, review of forced medication process, access to medical care, etc.

The case management system has been updated and actually throughout the project period around 1340 questionnaires and around 270 interviews are documented.
