PUBLIKACIJA ENGOn 1 January 2016, Juvetas and Centre for Monitoring and Research – CeMI and Queer Montenegro, started implementing the project Equal Access to Justice in Criminal Justice System of Montenegro.

The project is implemented with the support of the Open Society Foundation from Budapest (www.opensociety foundations.org) and aims at raising the level of respect for human rights in Montenegro.

In the Progress Report on Montenegro in the process of joining the European Union, the European Commission stated that there was a gap in the area of human rights between legal regulations and incorporation of human rights standards into the legal system, on the one hand, and practice of executive judiciary bodies, on the other hand, including courts’ practice. Such circumstances mostly affect some vulnerable categories of population, by directly preventing them from enjoying human rights guaranteed to them. The European Commission highlights that vulnerable groups are mostly affected by deficiencies in the field of protection and promotion of human rights. Furthermore, it states that the vulnerable groups are facing various problems inside the judiciary system, ranging from unequal access to justice to inadequate treatment in prisons and other closed institutions. The invisibility of vulnerable groups is the main cause of their position in the judicial system of Montenegro, which results in limitation of their rights, and practices in place that violate fundamental principles of justice, and perform discrimination on the basis of one’s personal features.

Due to these factors, the project is focused on the following three segments:

  1. Analysis of the potential patterns of human rights violations and discrimination against persons with mental disabilities and psycho-social challenges, as well as persons who use drugs, in the judiciary system of Montenegro;
  2. Analysis of the potential patterns of inadequate treatment and discrimination against persons with intellectual disabilities and psycho-social challenges, as well as LGBT persons, in closed institutions.
  3. Analysis of the potential patterns of discrimination against LGBT persons in prisons.

We have examined 80 cases of judicial practice under this project, which included suspects, accused and convicted persons who suffer from mental health challenges. Additionally, 17 control visits to the Institute for Execution of Criminal Sanctions were conducted, aiming at determining the position of prisoners with mental health challenges.

We are presenting the results of the study comprised of a comprehensive analysis of the legislative and strategic framework and practice in the judicial system of Montenegro, with the relevant recommendations in this area.
