    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Costa Rica Constitutional Court, in its judgment 2014-13289, ruled that prisoners should have the necessary equipment to sleep properly.

    This came after analyzing a complaint filed by a man who was arrested by officers of the Public Force in Upala, where he remained a prisoner for three days without a blanket or mattress while in deplorable sanitary conditions.

    “The judges declared the application admissible and ordered the State to pay damages,” informed the Constitutional Court, in an official statement.

    According to the Court, on various occasions they have reiterated, “That the detainee retains all their fundamental human rights and is only their freedom should be restricted.”

    The judges declared that the places where prisoners are kept must have conditions that do not violate the dignity of human beings.

    This is not the first time that the Constitutional Court has admitted to such failures. Last year the Ministry of Justice and Peace was criticized for the overcrowding, which was eventually eliminated in the Criminal Center of San Carlos.
