„There's no freedom nor safety for anyone
when there's no vigor of a law nor authority
of its defenders.”
William Shakespeare
The prison system is a public service that plays a special social part by being a guarantor for the
maintenance of a social equilibrium, by shaping inmates’ correct attitude towards social values, rule of law
and social coexistence rules.
The new Penal and Penal Procedure Codes came into force in 2014 – year which was also
st
marked, starting with February the 1 , by the enforcement of Law no. 254/2013 on enforcing prison
sentences and measures issued by the judicial bodies during the criminal trial, with its subsequent
amendments and completions.
The National Administration of Penitentiaries, as a state institution actively involved into prison law
enforcement, issued measures for implementing both the new penal execution provisions and the tools for
the social re-entry of inmates and of those sanctioned with the educational measure of being sent to an
educational or detention centre.
Implementing the new legislation required significant changes, which entailed the reorganization of
the prisons for minors and juveniles and of the re-education centres and the establishment of educational
centres and detention centres, with all the necessary structural and organizational modifications.

As a result of Law no. 374 dated 19 December 2013 on using radio-communication jamming and disruption systems
within the units subordinated to the NPA, the National Administration of Penitentiaries is entitled to acquire radio-communication
jamming and disruption services for the prison units. Currently, the technical advice contract for preparing the documentation for
the award of the service contract for radio-communication jamming and disruption is about to be concluded.
Steps were initiated with a view to implementing a videoconference hearing system to resolve civil and criminal

cases, as well as inmates’ complaints/appeals.
So far in this programme it has been decided to implement the videoconference hearing system at the National
Administration of Penitentiaries and in the following prisons Bucharest Jilava, Bucharest Rahova, Brăila, Tichilesti Detention
Centre, Colibasi, Focşani, Galaţi, Găeşti, Giurgiu, Mărgineni, Ploieşti, Poarta Albă, Slobozia, Târgşor and Tulcea. There have
National Administration of Penitentiaries
been undertakings addressed to the Special Telecommunications Service for making a dedicated server available to the
Romanian prison system, which will allow for inmates’ videoconference hearings in the above-mentioned units in a short time.
It must be underlined that the endowment and rehabilitation of the videoconference hearing areas were finished at
Bucharest Jilava Prison, Bucharest Rahova Prison, Giurgiu Prison, Ploiești Prison, Slobozia Prison and Târgșor
Prison.
The acquisition of a videoconference server and the rehabilitation of the videoconference hearing areas in Brăila,
Colibași, Focșani, Galați, Găești, Mărgineni and Poarta Albă prisons are scheduled in the first part of 2015 and, by the end
of the year, video-conferencing will be operational in all the units subordinated to the National Administration of
Penitentiaries.
The Integrated Tagging System was successfully implemented at Vaslui Prison, the reception taking place in

December 2014.
687 participants were included in training programmes on improving incidents management through the

development of professional skills in 2014. The training module III aimed at acquiring procedures for solving out operational and
critical incidents and it was about training prison staff members having a role within the incident teams, namely: incident
commanders and deputy commanders, negotiators, communication and connection officers, incident and team psychologists,
intervention structure members and the staff liable for managing emergency situations.
The training and refresher programmes carried out throughout 2014 aimed at improving the six levels of incidents
management, namely the incident room, the command room, intervention, negotiation, video operators, and emergency
situations management by developing professional competences and further improving specific skills for managing incidents
involving inmates:
a) command - 128 people (112 senior officers and 16 junior officers);
b) negotiation - 98 persons (40 senior officers and 58 junior officers);
c) intervention - 319 people (19 senior officers and 300 junior officers);
d) video operators - 70 junior officers;
e) emergency situation management - 24 persons (10 senior officers and 14 junior officers).
Between October 6th – 10th 2014, the National Administration of Penitentiaries organized, in collaboration with

Carol I National Defence University - Centre of Simulation Based Training, a simulation exercise called "AVALANCHE 2014".
The exercise objective was to train specialized staff members in the following fields:
1. negotiation plan (real plan);
2. the plan of incident, command and negotiation rooms and of the intervention squad (solving a fictional incident with
information resulting from the negotiation plan);
3. the plan of the unit where the incident took place.
Taking into consideration that the aim of Centre of Simulation Based Training is to increase the degree of inter-operability
of the Romanian military units with NATO's military operational structures, the exercises focused on developing the training level
of the staff who will participate in managing operational and critical incidents involving inmates, while using simulation of
situations that may be encountered in real life.
48 junior and senior officers of the National Administration of Penitentiaries and of Bucharest Rahova Prison, Bucharest
Jilava Prison, Târgşor Prison and Jilava Prison Hospital participated in the exercise.

The Study on the Prevalence of Aggressive Behaviours among Prisoners was continued in order to reveal the Causes
Disrupting the Usual Coexistence Climate. The conclusions of the study represent the basis for making recommendations on
reducing risk factors and for providing a real image of the prison violence phenomenon.
The comparative analysis of the period 2010-2014 was completed and the Strategy for Reducing Aggressive Behaviours
was elaborated and implemented in accordance with the activities scheduled for 2014, as the first strategy implementation year.

Activity report - 2014
2014 recorded a decrease in the number of transferred inmates among prison units, from 74,471 in 2013 to 68,482 in
2014. Taking into account the reasons which determined the transfer, the situation goes as follows:
o 17,616 inmates so that they could be sent to various judicial bodies, with a decrease as compared to 2013 (22,499);
o 30,369 inmates so that they could serve their sentence according to their prison regime and so that a balance among
the prison units could be maintained, with a decrease as compared to 2013 ( 30,556). The decreased number is
explained by the drop in the average prison population as a result of the new legal provisions in force, as well as by
the permanent monitoring of prisoner categories incarcerated in the subordinated units.
o 12,995 inmates in order to check in / check out of the prison hospitals, with a slight drop as compared to 2013
(13,490);
o 7,502 inmates for other situations (e.g. participation in various cultural, educational and sporting activities,
qualification courses, etc.), with a decrease as compared to 2013 (7,926);
o a slight drop (5.33%) of the number of people sent to the judicial bodies (190,993 in the reference year as compared
to 201,756 in 2013), while the average population dropped by 3.56% (31,847 in the reference year, as compared to
33,053 in 2013).

Overcrowding is a major challenge for the Romanian prison system, taking into consideration the objective
2
of the detention places management. At present, the deficit of accommodation places (4 m /inmate) is 11,170
places (for the prison population on 31.12.2014).
To limit the overcrowding effects, the National Administration of Penitentiaries focused on developing the
prison system infrastructure, in compliance with the legal provisions and the European prison rules. In 2014, the
following activities were organized:
1. Work on the following objectives was initiated:
- Turning a school pavilion into a detention pavilion – Găeşti Prison;
- Detention pavilion – Mărgineni Prison.
2. Continuing work on Pavilion 04 (detention + kitchen + central heating) – Codlea Prison;
3. Developing technical projects on:
- Turning 2 auxiliary administrative pavilions into detention spaces – Giurgiu Prison;
- Turning a stable into a detention facility – Işalniţa Branch – Craiova Prison;
- Turning a production workshop into a detention facility – Satu Mare Prison.
4. Unfolding the grants with Norway on:
- modernizing the juvenile wing in Bacau Prison – works will begin in 2015;
- setting up a therapeutic centre for female inmates in Gherla Prison – works will commence in 2015.
5. Modernizing the detention premises through current repairs in Tg. Ocna Prison Hospital – 36
accommodation places in the medical-social department.
A number of 1,380 accommodation places are about to be rehabilitated by reaching the capital repairs
objectives: Detention Pavilion – Codlea Prison (100), Detention Pavilion – Mărgineni Prison (200), Wings VII-VIII –
Aiud Prison (80), Detention Pavilion – Baia Mare Prison (200), Detention Pavilion – Iasi Prison (800).
The visit time was maintained, reaching the legal maximum time/visit (2 hours) in most prison units.

Activity report - 2014
In the reference period, 30 decisions issued by prison surveillance judges and 23 criminal sentences
issued by courts of law were examined and, as a result, there were recommendations on the following rights:
• providing optimal conditions for accommodation – 14 decisions;
• separating smokers from non-smokers – 1 decision;
• granting visits without a separation device – 2 decisions;
• access to information of public interest – 1 decision;
• granting days considered as having been served, following the participation in a qualification course – 1
decision;
• providing hygienic and sanitary materials – 1 decision;
• granting rewards – 1 decision;
• the right to work – 1 decision;
• right to medical care - 3 decisions;
• category of goods that may be received through the visit sector – 2 decisions;
• right to do the shopping – 1 decision;
• changing the prison regime, upon the prisoner’s request, from a more permissive regime into a more severe
one – 2 decisions;
In 2014, 148 points of view were submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – the Government Agent for
the European Court of Human Rights with a view to elaborating the defence of the CEDO detention conditions
cases which Romania is a part of.
Monitoring the cases in which Romania was condemned by ECHR for failing to comply with the detention
conditions showed a decrease in the number of issued decisions, from 32 decisions in 2013 to 29 decisions in
2014. Thus, in 2014, the Romanian State had to pay compensations in the sum of Euro 196,400, as compared to
the amount of Euro 221,819 in 2013.
As a result of 75 visits to detention places made by representatives of Non-Governmental Organizations,
reports on the findings were submitted to the National Administration of Penitentiaries. The drafted reports written by
various Human Rights entities were analysed at the NAP headquarters, the conclusions and points of view of the
institution being expressed in the monitoring reports made by the Detention Security and Prison Regime in
collaboration with the other specialist departments.
One of the biggest challenges for the computer
programmers of the institution was the re-configuration of
PMSWeb integrated application for keeping the record of and
calculating prison sentences and inmates' rights after the new
penal codes and the other normative documents of the penal
reform package came into force.
Despite the significant changes in the application, the
action was successfully carried out without any syncopes in the
prison activity.

Public awareness campaign
Ex-prisoners Social Re-entry – the Path To a Safer Community
MultiArt Festival for Prisoners
Activity report - 2014
44
The openness towards society and the concern for its security represented one of the
priorities of the Romanian prison system in 2014, too.
With a view to inmates’ social reintegration, activities involving representatives of the
central and local administrations, civil society, NGO-s and former prisoners were organized in
2014.
In this context, the InterFest National Inter-prison Festival was organized at Bucharest
Jilava Prison in August and it aimed at strengthening and developing the prisoner support
network by promoting cultural, artistic and sporting activities in collaboration with the civil society.
The event was attended by inmates, traditional community collaborators, as well as cultural and
artistic personalities.
In October, the public awareness campaign entitled Ex-prisoners Social Re-entry – the
Path To a Safer Community was launched by the NAP. On this occasion, in all prison units there
were debates and round tables organized in representative areas of the community, with the
participation of local artistic and cultural personalities.
To support the community, the NAP, through its subordinated units, continued to involve
prisoners into environmentally friendly activities, cleaning parks, flooding and snow removal.
These actions targeted at developing the civic sense and the feeling of civil society membership,
changing the civil society’s negative perception of prisons and, implicitly, of detainees. Another
objective was prisoners’ empowerment through work and preserving the idea of protecting the
environment.
MultiArt Festival for Prisoners reached its sixth edition and continued to be a good
prerequisite for rebuilding the prison-society relationship by involving professional artists and
students, organizing debates, performing valuable artistic shows and, especially, by attracting
thousands of spectators who got closer to the reality of the Romanian prison environment.

Crime prevention
The NAP drew up studies on highlighting the risk factors and vulnerabilities of the prison system and the evolutionary
trends thereof:
- Issues Concerning Inmates’ Treatment and the Enforcement of Detainees’ Rights – analysis on the risks of the prison
system being faced with complaints in justice about inmates’ treatment or the observance of their rights;
- Crime Groups Organised within the Prison System Units – Identification, Risk Factors – identifying the causes and
conditions favouring organized crime within the detention area;
- Contextual Issues about the Exposure to Corruption Risk within the Prison System – outlining the possibilities of
informing and protecting the prison system staff against the potential risks they may be exposed to while performing
their ongoing activities;
- General and Specific Issues about the Religious Assistance Provided to Muslim Inmates – understanding the
importance of some factors related to a potential radicalization of some Muslim detainees and the existence of a
uniform approach to this issue in prisons, allowing for the permanent knowledge of the situation and the approach of
efficient policies necessary to control the associated risk.
In order to implement the National Anti-corruption Strategy (NSA) within the NAP and to increase the level of anticorruption education:
- OMJ no. 1993/C/2014 on organizing and conducting corruption prevention activities within the prison system was
approved and published in the Romanian Official Gazette;
- A training stage for the integrity counsellors assigned for each prison unit was organized by the MJ in collaboration
with the NAP;
- Punctual Elements about Some Preventive Anti-corruption Measures Applicable to the Prison System Staff was
developed and included in the thematic plan of continuous training of civil servants with a special status;
- Training sessions for the staff of several prison units were organized in collaboration with the General Anti-corruption
Direction;
- Presentations on preventing corruption deeds and facts were delivered in the institutions training prison staff;
- Reports on the progress in implementing the NSA objectives in the prison system in 2014 were also drawn up.
15 criminal files compiled as a result of the collaboration with of public order and national security structures within
various measure plans initiated by the NAP management and endorsed by partner structures for providing evidence for
crimes committed in the prison units.
