Article from annual report 2019 – Special Report on Solitary Confinement in Norwegian Prisons

In June 2019, the Parliamentary Ombudsman submitted a Special Report to the Storting on Solitary Confinement and Lack of Human Contact in Norwegian Prisons. The report is based on findings from the National Preventive Mechanism’s (NPM) visits to 19 Norwegian prisons over the course of four years. The nature of these findings were so grave that we chose to compile them in a separate Special Report to the Storting – the most powerful instrument available to the Parliamentary Ombudsman.
