Ossetians in Georgian prisons

2009-04-21 16:17

4/5/6/2456.jpegA video of interrogation and beating of three Ossetian young men who disappeared last autumn is now on the web. The Ossetian rights defenders got hold of the recording made in the Georgian prison last week. The international organizations displayed no interest in the fate of people reported missing in Georgia.


There has been no public reaction from the international organizations flooding Georgia after the August war to the video of Alan Khachirov's, Alan Khugaev's and Soltan Pliev's beating. However South Ossetia still hopes the foreign rights defenders will help. Chairperson of RSO State Committee on Information and Press Irina Gagloeva told Georgia Times that the republic's human rights commissioner Dmitry Sanakoev was preparing a special address to his colleagues in Europe. Besides according to unofficial sources Gagloeva has information that the three Ossetians have been searched for by international organizations but so far without success. The biased rights defenders don't think it necessary to make a fuss of the video featuring a man beating young people

with a whipped baton.

The Georgian side denies involvement of its special services in kidnapping and detention of the Ossetian citizens who went missing on October 13 in Meret village of Tskhinval district. The last negotiations on the topic were held late in February in Geneva.

David Sanakoev, HR Plenipotentiary to RSO president, was confident stating that Alan Khachirov, Alan Khugaev and Soltan Pliev were kept in a Georgian prison. They were discovered by the Georgian ombudsman's colleagues. Thus the accusations against Georgia proved true. "Now we will try to learn the circumstances of their detention and the place they have been all this time. Fortunately, they are alive, and we'll take care of their future", - Sanakoev promised. However later he said it was stated in Georgia that "they had misidentified them and these were different people". ‘The Georgian side is constantly trying to conceal or corrupt the information", - Sanakoev told Regnum IA.

Dmitry Sanakoev does not specify how he came over the video of three young men's beating with the youngest being 16 years old at the time of disappearance. But in an interview with Georgia Times Irina Gagloeva hinted that when official Tbilisi refused to cooperate "people's diplomacy" was very helpful, "unindifferent people are in Georgia too".

Meanwhile the international community that is always sensitive about any violation of rights of Georgians is astonishingly disinterested in the fate of the three Ossetians.
