In Georgia there will appear an independent investigation group to investigate the facts of inhuman treatment of prisoners. This was stated by the Minister of Corrections, Probation and Legal Assistance George Tugushi, the News-Georgia reported.


"We are working on the idea of ​​an independent investigative group to investigate all the facts that took place in the system of Corrections in recent years. I have talked with the president, and within ten days the investigation group will be established", Tugushi said.

The group will be financed from the state budget. It will include representatives of the Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights and Legal Affairs, a representative of the Minister of Corrections, as well as the lawyers and prosecutors, who had no previous contact with the prisoners' affairs, representatives of NGOs, international experts and observers.

Recall, today about 100 people from Georgia living in the U.S. have gathered in front of the UN headquarters in New York to protest against the government of Mikhail Saakashvili in Tbilisi.

"We demand the international community's attention to the murder and torture taking place in Georgia", said one of the organizers of the rally Vakhtang Gomelauri. He believes that after Georgia had spread the footage of torture in Georgian prisons, "each of the Georgians is against Saakashvili's government".
