    Summary

    An inmate was subjected to violence at the hands of a fellow inmate at one of Salberga facility’s cellblocks. At the time of the violent incident, preparations were being made for out-of-cell time for inmates in another block. For security reasons, the facility had prioritised staffing in that division. For the same reason, releases for out-of-cell time were also prioritised in terms of camera surveillance resources. During a few minutes, there were no staff dedicated to the entire floor of the building, rather, the only staff assigned to the block were performing rounds between the floors. In the decision, the Parliamentary Ombudsman states that the Swedish Prison and Probation Service’s duties include protecting inmates from threats and violence perpetrated by other inmates. The investigation does not, however, show that the circumstances were such that the facility should have realized that there was a real and immediate risk that a fellow inmate would be subjected to violence if the block was left unattended during the very limited time when the time-out-of-cell release was carried out. Taking all factors into account, the Parliamentary Ombudsman finds no reason to criticise the facility or to make further statements on the matter.
