The formal notification states that "Perechyn district prosecutor's office launched pre-trial investigation in the criminal proceedings initiated on the basis of a criminal offense under Part 1 of Art. 367 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (negligence).
Earlier, a human rights officer reported about problems in the institution.
Oleg Grigoriev, the Regional Coordinator of the Department for the implementation of the national preventive mechanism of the Secretariat of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Commissioner on Human Rights, emphasized:
"Following the monitoring visit to Turya Remety neuropsychiatric clinic, a report will be sent to the head of the Transcarpathian regional state administration stating the identified deficiencies and violations and providing practical recommendations for their elimination.
