Response to the follow-up COVID-19 related statement by the council for PC-CP WG of the Council of Europe

The Council for Penological Co-operation Working Group (PC-CP WG) has held their 25th meeting on 8-10 September 2020. Additionally, members of the European Organization of Prison and Correctional Services (EuroPris) and the Confederation of European Probation (CEP) attended the meeting which aims to improve the general conditions of the prisoners within the member states, after the outbreak of COVID-19. Some states have taken measures in line with the proposals of the Council.

However, the statements of many prisoners indicate that Turkey has not taken the precautions and necessary measures for protecting the health of prisoners. The overcrowded prisons in Turkey, in the post-2016 period, need particular attention, especially after the spread of COVID-19. ASSEDEL’s response to The Council for Penological Co-operation Working Group (PC-CP WG) indicates the ongoing unlawful practices in Turkish prisons.
