- Bavaria will evaluate the policy for the provision of methadone to addicted prisoners and adjust where necessary. The German state thus responds to a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. That finds the current treatment 'inhumane'.

The complaint was filed by a man born in 1955, which was stuck in the penitentiary of Kaisheim and since his youth was dependent on heroin. He was also HIV-positive and infected with hepatitis C. This seasoned addict was sentenced in 2009 to six years in prison for drug trafficking. He was transferred to a clinic for 'cold turkey' to kick the habit but had since he secretly took methadone, back to jail. There he received his familiar stuff 'no longer required.
