Taking to jail immediate after giving birth
FTimes-STT Report, Mar 5
 
The state will compensate a woman who during an investigation was kept overnight in a cell after just having given birth.
 
The Office of the Parliamentary Ombudsman reports that there were two guards present in the delivery room, one of whom was a man.

There was a screen between the mother and the guards, but the guards did not act sensitively and with respect for the prisoner’s privacy as they should have.
 
The woman was placed in the cell only three hours after giving birth. This undermined her health. 
 
During her time in the cell, she was not given proper toiletries or the opportunity for proper hygiene. According to the statement, it is not clear whether the prisoner's cell was monitored.
 
When the prisoner was put in the cell, her poor condition was noticed. The maternity hospital had not yet been contacted. The prisoner's health deteriorated during the night.
 
Deputy Parliamentary Ombudsman Jussi Pajuoja has proposed monetary compensation. 
 
The State Treasury estimated that reasonable reparations for the violation of fundamen-tal human rights is worth euro 3,500.
