Late December 2014 prison officers from all correctional facilities staged protests in front of their workplaces in expression of their discontent with the non-observation of the Ministry of the Interior Act. The demonstrations concerned the bad labour conditions and the unfulfilled engagements of the Ministry of Justice. The protest was under the motto of ‘Until when? Law and lawlessness!’ The protesters expressed worries about both layoffs and a lack of increase in salaries. A meeting between the trade unions and the Minister of Justice on the problems connected with the non-implementation of the engagements and violation of the rights of the workers in the sector was organised on 28 January.
