Montenegro - OPCAT Situation
Montenegro ratified the OPCAT in 2009, with a declaration under Article 24 of the OPCAT postponing the establishment of an NPM for three years.
In 2011, the Protector on Human Rights and Freedom (Ombudsperson’s Office) was designated as Montenegro’s NPM, through amendments to the Law on the Ombudsperson’s Office. The NPM started to be operational in 2013.
The SPT member Aneta Stanchevska is the SPT Focal Point for Montenegro.
