The European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) has published the report on the conditions of the Albanian prisons.
Most of the detention places in the regional directorates of Tirana, Durresi, Gjirokastra and Korca were in good conditions, but the European observers noticed degrading conditions in the police stations number 1 and 3 in Tirana and Saranda.
The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), declared that psychiatric patients continue to be kept in inhuman conditions in Kruja's prison and in the Prison Hospital of Tirana.
While, the Albanian authorities declared that they are waiting for the construction of a new forensic psychiatric institution.
