Georgian prisoners to get the right of long-term communication2011-02-03 16:30
Since 2011, Georgian prisoners will get the right of long-term communication with their relatives and friends, Novosti-Georgia reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Relevant amendments to the Code of Imprisonment submitted by Minister of Probation, Execution of Sentences and Legal Assistance Khatuna Kamlakhelidze were discussed today at the joint session of the legal committee and the committee for human rights and civil integration of the Georgian parliament. According to the minister, all the necessary conditions have been created for a long-term communication with prisoners.
Prisoners will see their relatives and friends in more comfortable conditions. There are two 24-hour periods of communication per year and another one may be granted for good behaviour. As for the under-aged, they will be given four such periods. However, the meetings are paid: the cost of one meeting is 60 laris.
Presently, special facilities have been built for the long-term meetings in the first penal colony for under-aged and the sixth and sixteenth Rustavi colonies.
"The buildings for long-term communication are constructed as three-star hotels providing three meals, a shop, a walk in the yard, a separate bed for children and toys", - Kalmakhelidze stated in the course of presenting the amendments to the Code. She also promised that such buildings would be erected in all the colonies by 1 July 2012.
