On September 13-15, 2006 representatives of Public Defender’s office Giorgi Mshvenieradze, Zurab Kvitsiani and Koba Chofliani visited Rustavi jail # 6 and strict regime detention centres within the Ministry of Justice. They carried out a monitoring of punishment cells.

They visitied condemned Genadi Tsurtsumia, Imeda Butkhuzi and Badri Ketsbaia, who were dressed only in under pants in the cell. Their clothes were spread all over the corridor. According to Tsurtsumia, he had been in the punishment cell for 16 days without any clothes on.

The Public Defender Sozar Subari declared that he has already appealed to the  General Prosecutor's Office to investigate the fact and punish the offenders.

"According to representatives of Prison Administration, the prosoners refused themselves to be dressed . Hoever, the condemned deny the fact. Such treatement can be estimated as a torture. The offenders should be punished severely”, - Mr. Subari stated.
