How is correspondence with a convict maintained?

A detained person and convict are allowed to maintain correspondence at their expense, without restriction on letters sent and received.

Correspondence is carried out through the administration of an institution and is subject to external examination, without examining the contents of the correspondence, in order to rule out the transfer of prohibited objects or substances. Letters received for convicts, while they are absent, are forwarded to their new place. The letters in the name of a detained person or convict are received and the letter of a detained person or convict is sent to the addressee by the administration of a remind facility or correctional institution not later than within 3 working days from the day of receiving or submitting the letter for sending.
