The conditions of hygiene and detention of Geneva prisons were according to international standards. 3.39m² the individual space in the cell. No finding of degrading treatment

JUDGMENT
Bardali v. Switzerland 24.11.2020 (app. no.  31623/17)
The case concerned the applicant’s conditions of detention in Champ-Dollon Prison in the Canton of
Geneva.
The Court found, in particular, that the lack of personal space for the applicant in Champ-Dollon
Prison could not on its own constitute a breach of Article 3 of the Convention. Indeed, the individual
space available to the applicant, less than the 4 m² standard established by the European Committee
for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment (CPT), had to be considered
together with the applicant’s other material conditions of detention in order to determine whether
or not there had been a violation of Article 3.
