Georgians Doomed to Slavery in Turkey

The regional Prosecution office of Kakheti has revealed cases of trafficking. Megi from Lagodekhi (renamed Merriam after getting married in Turkey) and her mother were dealing in human trafficking in Turkey. They used to take Georgian women to Turkey promising them to provide well-paid jobs there.
Four women managed to escape slavery after having been detained by traffickers. Elena and Inga were among them, who had been in detention at the frontier for illegally crossing the border.

The women were released by the court under the supervision of police. The traffickers on the other hand could be sentenced to life imprisonment under the Georgian Criminal Code.
