Drugs yes, smoking no!

The petition made by Baltay Levente, advocat of HCLU's Legal Advocacy Service, against the Forensic Institute (IMEI) was found reasonable 1/3-2/3 by the Metropolitan Court, on the first instance.

Today the Metropolitan Court claimed on the first instance that the petition of HCLU against IMEI is only partly reasonable. The court shared our opinion concerning the violation of our client’s personal rights, when, although a non-smoker, he was hospitalised in the smoking section for five days. Beyond the obligation to assure the protection of non-smokers, the oparative law does not allow health institutions to maintain a smoking sections.

In order to rectify the trespass of hospitalizing our client to IMEI, and the medical treatment causing him serious allergic symptoms, we make an appeal.
