Prison to be replaced by public works in Georgia

2011-02-15 17:09

13551.jpegGeorgian law-enforcement authorities have presented a new project. The idea of the project is that imprisonment may be replaced by public works for those criminals who have committed a crime of average gravity, Echo of Caucasus reports.


According to Minister for Execution of Sentences Khatuna Kalmakhelidze, "we are talking not only about alternative punishment but about a situation when a criminal will perform useful work and thus compensate for the damage he has done to the society".

Practically, some "harmless" criminals will have a chance to work as bus conductors, garden workers, freight handlers and be engaged in other types of unqualified labour.

To avoid incidents, prisoners will wear special wristbands equipped with the GPS system. If a prisoner tries to escape or damage the wristband, relevant bodies will be instantly informed about it by a special signal.
According to Minister for Execution of Sentences Khatuna Kalmakhelidze, the ministry will define the term of the public works and their nature for each person.
