While inspecting the Thanlyin police lock-up, the MNHRC team viewed the conditions of detainees during the remand period, including whether any torture occurred during the investigation and whether there were opportunities to meet family members as well as provision of food and drinking water, the handling of sewage, and the overall cleanliness of the facilities.
The Lumbini Home for the Aged was also inspected under the MNHRC Law and procedures to ascertain whether residents were enjoying fundamental rights, including health services, appropriate food, purified drinking water, right to freedom of religion, adequate dormitories and arrangements for leisure.
