This document examines the Bulgarian authorities response to Amnesty International's recommendations following a visit to Dragash Voyvoda , a home for mentally impaired adults, in 2002. Many have been transferred to other institutions but Amnesty International is concerned that the steps taken so far to address the needs of current and former Dragash Voyvoda residents are inadequate. The organization is concerned that observed living conditions, lack of therapy and rehabilitation and the enforcement of seclusion in some of the institutions, amounts to inhuman and degrading treatment, prohibited by international law.
