Keywords: Ombuds Institution
The Czech Republic ratified the OPCAT in 2006 and designated its Ombuds Institution, the Public Defender of Rights, as its NPM. To make the institution compliant with OPCAT requirements, amendments were brought to the Law and a NPM unit was established.
The Czech NPM started to be operational in January 2006.
The SPT member who is the SPT Focal Point for the Czech Republic is available here.
