I Introduction, The Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners have constituted the universally.
acknowledged minimum standards for the management of prison facilities and the treatment. of prisoners and have been of tremendous value and influence in the development of prison. laws policies and practices in Member States all over the world 1 Following an extensive. inter governmental review process initiated to reflect advances in international law and cor . rectional science the General Assembly adopted in 2015 2 a revised set of the rules as the. United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners the Nelson. Mandela Rules A truly updated blueprint for prison management in the twenty first century . the rules were to be known as the Nelson Mandela Rules in order to honour the legacy of. the late President of South Africa Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela who had to spend 27 years. in prison in the course of his struggle for human rights democracy and the promotion of a. culture of peace , Within the United Nations system the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime UNODC . acts as the custodian of the international standards and norms related to the treatment of. prisoners including the Nelson Mandela Rules Accordingly the General Assembly requested. UNODC to ensure the broad dissemination of the Nelson Mandela Rules to design guid . ance material and to provide technical assistance and advisory services to Member States in. the field of penal reform in order to develop or strengthen penitentiary legislation procedures . policies and practices in line with the rules 3 This checklist constitutes a direct response to. this request and forms part of the UNODC Global Programme on Addressing Prison Chal . lenges which provides for technical assistance geared at a reducing the scope of imprison . ment b improving prison conditions and strengthening prison management and c sup . porting the social reintegration of prisoners upon release . 1, The Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners were adopted by the First United Nations. Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders in 1955 and approved by the Economic. and Social Council in its resolutions 663 C XXIV of 31 July and 2076 LXII of 13 May 1977 . 2, General Assembly resolution 70 175 entitled United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment. of Prisoners the Nelson Mandela Rules , 3, General Assembly resolution 70 175 para 15 . 1, 2 ASSESSING COMPLIANCE WITH THE NELSON MANDELA RULES.
1 Context, United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners the Nelson Mandela Rules . Rule 83, 1 There shall be a twofold system of regular inspections of prisons and penal services . a , Internal or administrative inspections conducted by the central prison. administration , b , External inspections conducted by a body independent of the prison. administration which may include competent international or regional bodies . 2 In both cases the objective of the inspections shall be to ensure that prisons are. managed in accordance with existing laws regulations policies and procedures with a. view to bringing about the objectives of penal and corrections service and that the. rights of prisoners are protected , Monitoring and inspection mechanisms shed a fresh and critical light on institutions which .
by their very nature are closed environments and therefore require particular efforts to. counter the risk of abuse The basic function of monitoring and inspecting prisons whether. internal or external should be seen against this background It is to contribute to a safe . secure and humane prison environment by a getting a proper understanding of all relevant. aspects of prisons including structural causes of any problems identified b comparing. actual prison conditions management and practice against relevant provisions in national. and international law and by c submitting a report and recommendations on how the. prison system and the treatment of prisoners could be improved Through a constructive. dialogue with national authorities they can be crucial to initiate change and reform with a. view to helping prisons live up to minimum standards . The part of the Nelson Mandela Rules on internal and external inspections rules 83 85 . constitutes a major development vis vis the vague formulation on the inspection of prisons. in the original version of the Standard Minimum Rules of 1955 These provisions are a clear. reflection of the significant development of international standards and practice with regard. to independent monitoring and inspections of prisons in recent decades both at the inter . national and national levels Central to this development are the mechanisms for the preven . tion of torture through regular external visits to places of deprivation of liberty in particular. the Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture and Other Cruel Inhuman or Degrading Treat . ment or Punishment and the numerous national preventive mechanisms set up under the. Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel Inhuman or Degrading. Treatment or Punishment 4 5 As it was the provisions in the Optional Protocol in particular . which inspired the language of rules 84 and 85 of the Nelson Mandela Rules it is unsur . prising therefore that the guidance provided by the Nelson Mandela Rules on authority . 4, United Nations Treaty Series vol 2375 No 24841 . 5, At the regional level see also the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrad . ing Treatment or Punishment established under the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture and Inhu . man or Degrading Treatment or Punishment of the Council of Europe the Rapporteurship on the Rights of Persons. Deprived of their Liberty established by the Inter American Commission for Human Rights 119th session 2004 . and the Rapporteurship on Prisons Conditions of Detention and Policing in Africa established by the African. Commission on Human and Peoples Rights twentieth ordinary session 1996 . Chapter I Introduction 3, composition and activities of inspection mechanisms has been developed primarily with. external inspection mechanisms in mind 6, The above notwithstanding rule 83 of the Nelson Mandela Rules provides for a twofold. system for regular inspections of prisons which is to consist not only of external inspections. conducted by a body independent of the prison administrations but also of internal or. administrative inspections to be conducted by the central prison administration . Internal inspections in the Prisons Service of Kenya. The Kenya Prisons Service KPS is currently implementing a programme of comprehensive. internal inspections for compliance with the Nelson Mandela Rules The programme which has. been developed under the longstanding cooperation between KPS and the Raoul Wallenberg. Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law RWI sees small teams of officers visit a. prison for a week long inspection using an instrument consisting of the Rules broken up into. more than 500 individual elements Other international standards such as the United Nations. Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non Custodial Measure for Women Offenders. the Bangkok Rules are also included where relevant and at the end of the week detailed. reports on the findings are delivered to the officer in charge of the prison . The inspections are intended as a constructive process to help the prisons improve compliance . rather than criticize them for non compliance Following a first audit the team will return to the. concerned prison for a second week meeting with relevant section heads to assist them in. developing action plans to address any rule not yet met in full KPS has found that compliance. with most of the rules can be increased at little or no cost with the focus on improving policies . procedures training documentation and accountability Repeat inspections have. demonstrated that numerous prisons could make meaningful steps in meeting the rules . despite constraints faced in terms of resources , As well as monitoring change in compliance with the Rules KPS uses the data from the audits.
to inform the design of training programmes for prison staff as well as reform priorities at. national level Where common issues are identified across a range of institutions KPS issues. national policy directives to focus attention on priority areas that require attention and. resource input So far nine prisons have been inspected some of them multiple times as. part of the KPS RWI cooperation while KPS has indepen.
