GUIDE OF PRISONER’S FIRST CONTACT


GUIDE OF PRISONER’S FIRST CONTACT

The Guide of Prisoner’s First Contact was prepared by the Commissioner for Administration and the Protection of Human Rights (Ombudsman) and lawyers of the Association of the Protection of the Rights of Prisoners & Ex-Prisoners, taking in consideration the articles of the existing legislation and the rules and regulations in force, as well as real experiences gained from having contact with persons who remained in custody either as detainees pending trial or convicts in the Central Prisons of the Republic of Cyprus.

It is noted that for the publication of this guide we requested and received the views of the Department of Prisons.

This is a guide to inform new detainees / prisoners about their rights, obligations, and rules of safe cohabitation within the prison. The guide aims to answer, in a plain and simple language, some initial simple questions about prisoner's rights.

This will be followed by translations into languages understood by foreign prison inmates and will be reissued.
