    Summary

    Since 2006, the Prison and Probation Service has had temporary remand operations in the Police Authority’s detention premises in Östersund. During an Opcat inspection in 2013, the Parliamentary Ombudsmen stated that the Prison and Probation Service should seriously consider the suitability of continuing to use the premises as a remand prison. After a second Opcat inspection 2016, the Parliamentary Ombudsmen found that, unless immediate action was taken, the Prison and Probation Service should stop placing persons on remand in the premises. Some changes have subsequently been made to the premises. Furthermore, the Prison and Probation Service’s intention is for the premises to only be used for placement of inmates with restrictions. Despite these changes, the Parliamentary Ombudsmen finds that the fact remains that the current premises are unsuited for use as a remand prison. According to the Parliamentary Ombudsmen, Östersund’s geographical location is not enough to justify keeping persons on remand in the premises. The only reasonably solution is thus for the Prison and Probation Service to stop using the current premises as a remand prison and not resume the use of remand operations in Östersund until suitable premises are found. According to the Prison and Probation Service, new remand prison premises are expected to be ready in the spring of 2020.
