“We can give such recommendation to attendant of Batumi-Tbilisi train,” said Lortkipanidze and reminded Tughushi of his rights and responsibilities.

Herewith, the MP paid particular attention to the Ksani prison, where over 700 serve their terms in the detention setting designed for 422 inmates and most of them suffer from tuberculosis as well as from AIDS and C-hepatitis.
