Women-prisoners to embark on hunger strike in Georgia

2011-03-10 13:25

14417.jpegHuman rights defender Eka Beselia informed the media that the Georgian women-prisoners are going to embark on hunger strike because of unbearable conditions in prisons, - GHN reports.


Eka Beselia underlined that women-prisoners demand attention to their problems. "They often sleep right on the cold floor. They cannot practice proper hygiene; they are kept under inhuman conditions", - Beselia says.

Beselia remarked that the penitentiary system is practically unavailable for monitoring.

The human rights defender says that it is not only women-prisoners who are kept in tough conditions. There have been recorded many facts of torture. For instance, an invalid with a second degree of disablement has been recently beaten for trying to protect his rights.

Human right defenders complain that the state does not respond to the violation of the prisoners' rights.
