The applicant, Hakan Sanatkar, is a Turkish national who was born in 1959 and lives in Dobroieşti, in Ilfov County (Romania). The case concerned his conditions of detention.
In 1998 Mr Sanatkar was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment for attempted murder. He served his sentence in several Romanian prisons. However, his application relates only to the conditions of detention in Giurgiu Prison (from 29 September 2011 to 4 February 2013) and Bucharest-Jilava Prison (from 4 February 2013 to 23 March 2014).
Relying in particular on Article 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment), Mr Sanatkar complained of overcrowding in these prisons. In particular, in Bucharest-Jilava Prison, 38 prisoners allegedly shared a 45 sq. m cell that was fitted out with triple bunk beds.
