Kosovo: “corruption cases have destroyed the prison system”

Kosovo is a small country of about 11,000 km². It has 12 prisons and 1,648 prisoners, according to the last published figures. The Kosova Rehabilitation Centre for Torture Victims (KRCT) monitors and visits prisons to defend and promote human rights. Alban Muriqi is a law graduate and a project manager at KRCT. Prison Insider asks him three questions.

"Living conditions in detention centres/remand centres are less conducive."

"One expected that attention would be focused on reintegration in the organisation of the prison system. That was not the case."

"We monitor the hearings and communicate with the authorities as a third party."
