Acting upon the recommendations of the National Preventive Mechanism (NPM), the Zrenjanin District Prison repaired sanitary facilities and moisture, paintied the walls of the cells and the kitchen, disinsected the rooms and increased the capacity of the laundry by purchasing another washing machine.

The District Prison's response also states that the procedure for a detailed body search has been changed so that the persons no longer take away all the clothes at the same time, that the documentating of the person's injury has been improved by marking injuries on the body charts, that the exclusion of the convict from the regular regime of sentence serving will be made on the basis of an appropriate decision and that the medical doctor will continuously control the health condition of persons who are isolated or physicaly restrainted.

Also, the NPM was informed that members of the Security Service were provided with certain parts of uniforms that were missing and that the employment of a medical technician was in progress.

The NPM visited the Zrenjanin District Prison on July 13, 2018. A report was made on the visit, with recommendations to improve the work of the Prison and the treatment of persons deprived of their liberty.
