Commission for Monitoring of Correctional-Penitentiary Institutes visited the prisons in Zenica, Doboj, Tuzla and Bihac.
In the prison in Zenica it was concluded that 800 persons serve their sentences, although the capacity of prison is 690 convicts.
The Commission alleges that the conditions for serving of sentences are not at the satisfactory level.
Considering that the prisoners complained on food and hygiene standards, the Commission concluded that FBiH Ministry of Justice is obliged to provide money for reconstruction of the kitchen and building of toilets and pipes.
In the prison in Doboj where 70 persons serve their sentences there is no doctor employed.
In the prison for women in Tuzla and Correctional Institute for Juveniles it was concluded that the housing conditions are "absolutely unacceptable".
The Commission noted that the place was unconditional, depressing, and leads to frustration and conflict.
"The area where a home for juvenile offenders is located is inadequate, and children spend most of the time in locked rooms", reads the report of the Commission for Monitoring and adds that areas itself is irritating and seems antisocially on minors.
In the prison in Bihac 81 prisoners and 20 detainees serve sentences, and this object is in "relatively good condition".
