Children of female inmates in central Turkey's Keskin Prison have not been given milk, eggs or toys for months, a recent report by the Parliamentary Prisoners' Rights sub-committee revealed.
The female prisoners reported that they're only able to bring their kids to the daycare in the prison a few times a year, and that they're not allowed to see their kids when they want to.
"Children should be taken to kindergarten regularly for their mental and psychological development," the committee report noted.
The women are transported to hospitals in handcuffs, can only be examined by a doctor with a soldier present, and have to disclose private health concerns in the presence of the guards, they said.
The committee also said that numerous inmates have made grievances about security cameras in the prison that were located in positions that violate the inmates' privacy.
"The cameras used to monitor public spaces in the women's ward should be repositioned to not view the bathrooms and the toilets," the committee said in the report.
