Georgian refugees want to get a job
Georgian refugees relocated to a new area of Poti in Maltakva, demand to ensure them a job. As reported by the "Caucasian Knot", otherwise they threatened mass protests. "We are here for already 15 days and nobody says nothing to us about a job" - told refugee from Sukhumi Tina Chitanava to reporters.
According to the woman, the majority of the refugees agreed to move to Poti only on the condition that they will get a job here. If within one month the problem is not resolved, they will start protesting.
Recall on the eve of the Ministry of Refugees and Resettlement of IDPs forced the IDPs to leave the Hotel "Abkhazia" in Tbilisi, where they have lived for many years.
"The process was carried out with involvement of the United Nations and observance of international norms" - said the ministry in a statement. "The 20-year suffering of people who lived in these infernal and unhygienic conditions in the Hotel" Abkhazia are now ended" - noted the ministry.
However, the opposition, watching the eviction, claimed that the refugees were under pressure and that many of them did not want to leave the hotel. Previously the Ombudsman and the opposition parties opposed the eviction of refugees, as well as human rights defenders and public organizations.
Ministry of Refugees said that eviction of IDPs was part of the campaign promises, because those refugees agreed to get 10 thousand dollars per family from the owner of the hotel.
