The Ombudsman, performing the activities of the National Preventive Mechanism, visited the Novi Pazar District Prison on August 21, 2018, in order to monitor the treatment of recommendations from the Report on visit to the Novi Pazar Prison from 2017. During this visit, it was determined that the Prison has acted upon most of the recommendations from the previous year's Report. Also, in order to further improve the treatment of persons deprived of liberty, the NPM issued two new recommendations.

Acting upon these recommendations, the Prison informed the NPM that in the future, all documents about the injuries of newly received persons and their allegations will be submitted to the competent public prosecutor's office. Also, the Prison labeled the mail box for submitting requests for confidential interviews with the manager, so that convicts could contact him also in this way.
