As the adviser to the Mufti of Tatarstan, the chairman of the Board of the Yardem Foundation, Ildar Hazrat Bayazitov, members of the PMC are also worried about the problem of disabled people and issues of accessible environment in places of detention. “During the design, issues of an accessible environment must be taken into account,” he said. Members of the PMC RT in such cases decided to apply officially to the relevant authorities. The meeting also raised issues of timely treatment of convicts.

Members of the PMC have the right to visit special institutions without special permission, to talk with suspects, accused and convicted.
