MOSCOW, April 2 (RAPSI) – The Justice Ministry of Russia has proposed to vest ombudsmen with a power to receive convicts personally in colonies. The relevant draft order has been published on the official website of draft laws and regulations.

Currently, only prison administration, chiefs of the territorial penitentiary system bodies, Russia’s penitentiary service, prosecutor’s office and government bodies, and members of public monitoring committees may personally receive inmates in colonies and prisons.
