Execution of sentences is a complex and diverse activity. The main national legal sources of rules governing the execution of sentences are the Criminal Code, the Criminal Procedure Code and the Execution of Punishments and Pre-trial Detention Act. In addition, there is a substantial number of by-laws and other administrative and policy documents that regulate essential aspects of the rights and obligations of prisoners, the powers of the penitentiary authorities and the prosecutor's office as a body supervising the execution of sentences, etc. However, most of these documents are not made publicly available; they cannot be found on the websites of the respective state institutions either. Here we publish exactly those difficult to find public acts. The majority of them were collected by the BHC under the Access to Public Information Act.
