The Deputy Ombudsman Ivan Šelih, accompanied by his co-workers of the national preventive mechanism (NPM) Jure Markič, Robert Gačnik and Lilijana Jazbec paid a visit to the National Preventive Mechanism of Croatia on 3 and 4 November 2015 which, as is the case in our country (in cooperation with non-governmental organisations and other representatives of the civil society), is carried out by Pučki pravobranitelj.

The representatives of the national preventive mechanism got acquainted, within the framework of this visit, with the methods of work of the national preventive mechanism of Croatia, in particular the work in prisons, at police stations and at psychiatric hospitals. Together with their colleagues from the neighbouring country they visited a prison in Zagreb, a police detention centre in Zagreb and a psychiatric hospital in Vrabče. They became familiar with some interesting solutions, such as the institution of the police detention supervisor and centre for diagnostics for convicted persons sentenced to imprisonment. The experience gained in the context of this study visit will certainly be helpful in our further work. Such forms of cooperation and exchange of experience in the implementation of preventive visits within the network SEE Network have already proved to be useful in the past and we wish to continue with them in the future.

At the request of their colleagues, the representatives of the national preventive mechanism of Slovenia presented to the counterparts of the neighbouring country the provision of health care for the convicted persons serving a prison sentence within the public health network, highlighting advantages and disadvantages. There was great interest in gaining our experience in this area, since such a manner of providing health care is also expected to be adopted by the Republic of Croatia.
