In addition, the article offers guidelines for the improvement of the legal regulation and implementation of the legal institute of restriction of liberty. The article extensively relies on the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners passed by the UN in 1955 and on the Recommendation R (97) 12 of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe on staff concerned with the implementation of sanctions and measures, on the legal regulation and enforcement practices of the penalty of restriction of liberty in foreign states, opinions and works of foreign scientists and other authors and makes use of the statistics and performance data of correctional inspectorates subordinate to the Prison Department under the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Lithuania.
