Short Update: Romanian prisons suspend visits but grant greater access to online communication

FairTrialsAdmin - March 30, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, prison conditions

Prison and detention centres in Romania have scrapped both visits and personal deliveries from the outside amid coronavirus concerns. Some efforts have been made to counterbalance the loss of visitation rights by increasing access to online and phone communications. Those held in maximum security are now allowed 45 minutes of phone time, while lower security detainees are allowed 75 minutes. Prisoners have also been given  greater access to online communications, with the duration and number of visits a prisoner is entitled replaced with access to internet calls.
