By visiting the “Ratko Pavlovic – Cicko” barracks in Prokuplje on Friday, 25 October 2019, the National Preventive Mechanism completed the visits to military facilities planned for this year. Visits to the barracks were conducted to monitor the manner in which the disciplinary measures – the ban on leaving a military facility and the ban on leaving special premises in a military facility are enforced, and they were introduced in August as a new, regular activity of the NPM.

Over the past three months, the NPM visited 16 barracks, and the military personnel in the visited barracks have fully cooperated with the NPM and provided all requested and required information. On the basis of the visits, the NPM will produce a thematic, comprehensive report presenting its findings on the position of persons subject to a disciplinary measure and the conditions found in the premises where the measure is enforced.
