Turkey is beating an alarm about its citizens kept in Georgian prison for nothing. No wonder: it has become known at the end of last week that the mortality level in Sakartvelo prisons has jumped of late. In the nearest time, Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan is going to come to the defense of his fellow countrymen and if Tbilisi does not make concessions it may lead to grave consequences.
Association for Support and Solidarity with Victims appealed to Prime Minister of Turkey, calling on him to take all the necessary measures to release his fellow countrymen from the Georgian prison. The point is that 90 percent of prisoners have been convicted illegally. According to the association Chairperson Nuri Kaputoglu, most Turks are accused of corruption and are kept in prisons in unbearable conditions.
That's not a mere assertion. For example, a citizen of the town of Patsi Serdal Goksu is currently serving a sentence in one of the colonies of the republic together with his cousin on a charge of bribery. According to Serdal's relatives, having completed his army service, he went to Georgia and found a job there but was soon arrested. The court admitted Goksu guilty and sentenced him to five years of imprisonment, obliging to pay the fine of several million dollars. Serdal's brother was sentenced to 12 years. Goksu's family is sure that the witnesses had been bribed.
The lawlessness in the vaunted penitentiary system of Sakartvelo does not surprise anyone any more. It sends to prison both foreigners and native citizens. In April, a story of the arrest of a Turkish businessman, director for Doruk Nut and Rood Company Iyaman Chagatay, was widely talked about. According to the investigation, three years ago, the investor received almost two million laris from the Georgian budget under a soft crediting program for the construction of a citrus-producing plant but he did not fulfill the undertaken obligations and allegedly pocketed over one million laris. According to the media, Chagatay could be sentenced to over ten years. Since then, there was no information about the Turk. It is quite probable that now he will find himself in prison together with his fellow countrymen, and the conditions are not the best there.
