The Commissariat for Refugees and Migration and the Ministry of Labor, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs informed the Ombudsman that in Preševo Reception Center water heating is no longer a problem and that all measures were taken in terms of equipment. However, due to problems with the water supply in Preševo, on whose solving United Nations Development Program (UNPD) is included, the Center has limited use of showers in cases of extraordinary excessive consumption.
In addition, in Bujanovac Temporary Registration Center the title of the document issued to migrants when temporarily leaving the Center is aligned with its actual purpose and measures were taken to provide interpreters for the languages spoken by migrants who are placed here.
In order to monitor the treatment of migrants by competent authorities, the National Preventive Mechanism visited Preševo Reception Center, Bujanovac Temporary Registration Center, Vranje Police Department, Border Police Regional Center on the Border with Macedonia and Preševo Social Welfare Center from 08 to 10 November 2016. In the Report on these visits, the recommendations of measures to remedy identified deficiencies are addressed to the competent authorities.
