“In our facility, prison # 6, we are allowed to call only on 5 phone numbers – for 10 minutes per month.

How can we distribute that 10 minutes a month when we need a lot of things? How can we resolve our problems? I cannot call my 4-year-old child; is it their democracy?! I have petitioned to almost every MP about this issue but nobody replied. We no longer enjoy conjugal meetings; they completely degrade us. People are going insane,” an inmate of the prison # 6 wrote to Human Rights Center.
