“Executive, legislative and judicial powers must ensure that there will be an end to the ongoing crime against people who, against their will, are led to incarceration in institutions,” he adds. It states that all preventive and other possible measures must be taken to effectively supervise and monitor the living conditions of people with disabilities residing in institutional structures, such as psychiatric facilities, nursing homes, community homes or other settings, the investigation and accurate determining the causes and conditions of death of people with disabilities, including suicide.

Then, after noting that it is estimated that more than 13 thousand citizens of all ages still live in institutional structures, including four thousand people with disabilities, adds that the permanent position of KYSOA is to immediately end the forcing of people with disabilities into confinement in institutions.
