Romania had been struggling for many years with the issue of overcrowding of places of detention, which has attracted numerous convictions in front of the European Court of Human Rights since 2007 (Case of Bragadireanu v. Romania), reaching a semi pilot decision in 2012 (the Case of Iacov Stanciu v. Romania). Although the Court has recently acknowledged some progress made by the Romanian authorities to improve the conditions of detention, it found that the measures were ineffective, the factual situation was not changed, the resulting aspect and the large number of repetitive complaints in court, in which the plaintiffs invoke the precariousness of the detention conditions in our country, which leads to violation of art. 3 of the European Convention of Human Rights, on “the right not to be subjected to torture and other inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” Thus, the Court has reached a pilot decision in the Case of Rezmiveş and Others v. Romania, the Romanian authorities adopted the Law no. 169/2017.
