Constitutional Court: Prisoners entitled to attend hearings in all courts

   

 

On 18 April the Constitutional Court announced that people serving sentences in penal institutions have the right to participate in hearings into their case at all levels.

The Court noted that the law does not regulate procedure for ensuring participation in hearings of people held in detention, under restricted liberty, imprisoned for a particular period or life prisoners. It stressed the importance of a person’s participation in the hearings and therefore the need for this to be ensured via the relevant provisions in procedural law.
