Are phone conversations with prisoners possible?

The detained person or convict may, at his or her expense, use a telephone installed within a remand facility or in the premises of a correctional institution, respectively. A detained person is given the opportunity to use telephone communication in case of absence of an attachment from a body implementing criminal proceedings.

Telephone communication is organised through telephone junction boxes with cards; the detained person or convict may obtain the cards for those boxes from the kiosk or store of the remand facility or correctional institution or receive them as deliveries or in a parcel.

In the interests of examination, telephone conversations of detained persons may be prohibited upon the decision of the body implementing criminal proceedings.

The duration of use of telephone communication may not exceed 15 minutes in each case.

Using telephone communication is not permitted at night hours.
