The Public Defender of Rights

Protection of Persons Restricted in their Freedom


If a facility, where persons restricted in their freedom are located, or a state administration authority having jurisdiction over the facility does not fulfill its obligation to cooperate with the Defender or does not adopt sufficient measures to remedy identified deficiences, the Defender may inform the public about the matter.

The publication is a penalty that the law empowers the Defender to impose. In case a facility or an authority commits such serious malpractice the Defender informs the public. The Defender publishes the findings in their entirety and can also identify persons who have acted on behalf of the relevant institutions.
