The Cabinet of Ministers supported the implementation of a pilot project on a paid service aimed at improving the living conditions and nutrition of persons detained in pre-trial detention centers of the Criminal Executive Service of Ukraine.
This was announced by the Minister of Justice of Ukraine Denis Malyuka, informs the press service of the department.
“According to the relevant resolution, it is proposed to introduce in separate pretrial detention centers the possibility for detained persons to receive, on a voluntary basis, for an appropriate fee, better living conditions and food” said Malyuka.
Thus, in certain pretrial detention centers will be allocated premises which, by their condition, do not require major repairs and could be used within the framework of a pilot project on a paid service for the improvement of living conditions.
