1 When examining the question put by the
Honourable Parliamentarian, the Committee of Ministers was informed
by the Dutch delegation that an investigation had been launched
following instructions from the State Secretary for Security and
Justice and executed by the Security and Justice Inspectorate. The
investigation established that Mr Dolmatov had been wrongly placed
in immigration detention, that the legal assistance provided was
not in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations and that
the medical care provided was inadequate considering his state of
health. The Dutch delegation indicated that the authorities have adopted
measures based on recommendations given by the Security and Justice
Inspectorate in order to prevent similar incidents occurring.
2 The Dutch delegation also informed the Committee that its
authorities presented a response to the report of the European Committee
for Prevention of Torture (CPT) by letter of 9 August 2013. This
response was made public by the CPT on 21 August 2013(http://www.cpt.coe.int/documents/nld/2013-22-inf-eng.pdf).
The Dutch authorities underlined in this respect that the CPT’s
recommendations have been taken into due consideration.
