”Excellent Accommodation of Inmates" in Hungarian Prison Praised by International Ombudsman Institute Chief
Chris Field, president of the International Ombudsman Institute (IOI), has paid visits to Hungary’s prison service directorate BVOP and the prison of Veszprém in the company of Ákos Kozma, commissioner for fundamental rights

Major General János Schmehl, BVOP’s deputy chief in charge of security and detention, briefed Field on the basic tasks of the prison service and major development projects of the past few years, BVOP said in a statement.

In Veszprém, a city in western Hungary, the IOI president was briefed on prison conditions, security measures, and efforts to reintegrate the inmates.

Both sides qualified the meeting as useful. BVOP said the IOI delegation praised the professional work of the prison staff, the excellent accommodation of inmates, the security system, and the treatment of prisoners.
