NGOs Demand a Solution for Penitentiary Problems

The7th isolator of the Justice Ministry’s penitentiary department is in worse shape than the 5th isolator of Tbilisi, states the chairperson of the NGO “Former Political Prisoners for Human Rights”, Nana Kakabadze.

According to Kakabadze, the 7th isolator had been closed after protests by the Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT), though it has once again been opened. The cells of the 7th isolator are dark and damp, there are no toilets, and no running water. And unlike other isolators, the members of the Independent Councils of the Justice Ministry can not enter the 7th.

Currently, Gia Jokhtaberidze, the son in law of former president Shevardnadze, is in the 7th  isolator for three months pre-term imprisonment.
