A group of 23 Georgians who have become victims of human trafficking, returned home from Turkey on July 29, the News Georgia reported. All of them are the residents of the city of Zestafoni in western Georgia.


According to the reports, during several days the citizens of Georgia were kept in the basement of a house in the town of Ichkerit. They have found themselves in Turkey after a certain Lasha Navareli had promised them job in this country. But after their arrival in the country they were locked up in the basement. The kidnappers demanded a ransom of $ 2,000 for the each Georgian citizen.

The citizens of Georgia were kept in deplorable conditions. They were beaten, threatened at gunpoint and kept in extremely unsanitary conditions, the Caucasian Knot cited the words of the Consul of Georgia in Turkey Zurab Pataridze.

One of the hostages has managed to send an SMS message to his family in the city Zestafoni, asking for immediate assistance, because their lives were in danger. After the intervention of Georgian diplomats the local police found the basement where the citizens of Georgia were kept in custody. Members of the group were detained.

Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
