All people in Canada have human rights, and inmates are no exception. All people in prison or jail have the right to be treated humanely and to have their rights respected.
If you or someone you care about is being abused or has other issues in prison, there are actions that you can take. Depending on the situation, inmates can take action by filing a civil lawsuit, filing complaints against the involved people, or filing habeas corpus to have their conditions of imprisonment reviewed by a court.
Amanda Hart-Dowhun has notable experience conducting habeas corpus applications and addressing other prison related issues. We can provide advice on your options and help you take action. If you believe that your rights are not being respected in prison, call ADH Law today.
