Key facts of the case:

The case relates to a (one) month break in the execution of the penalty of 25 years of imprisonment served by the applicant J.P. convicted in 2002. The applicant claimed a break in order to receive treatment outside prison. The District Court in Suwałki refused to grant the break in the sentence in a decision based on the grounds that there are no health reasons justifying such a decision. This decision was appealed by the applicant's lawyer. The Court of Appeal in Białystok changed that decision by granting the applicant a break in serving the prison sentence.
