2012-09-27 16:35

Georgian Prosecutor General's Office has detained four employees of Kutaisi prison No 16 as part of the investigation of ill-treatment of prisoners, the RIA Novosti reported. This was announced at a briefing by the prosecutor Shota Tkeshelashvili.


"Law enforcement officials have detained the Director of the Kutaisi Prison No 16 Zurab Ruhaya, the chief security officer David Narsiya and prison inspectors on duty Nikoloz Vakhtangishvili and George Grdzelidze, implicated in the torture, rape and inhuman treatment of prisoners, as part of the investigation", Tkeshelashvili said.

According to him, all four detainees are charged under the Article 144-1 of the Criminal Code of Georgia ("torture").

Previously, we reported that prisoners of the Ksani colony No 15, located 40 kilometers from Tbilisi, have complained that they had been tortured.

In an interview the Georgian prisoners told reporters that some prison officials had used electric shockers. As a result, according to unofficial information, one prisoner has died.

Earlier, human rights activists have reported on torture in this colony. Two years ago, the Georgian authorities have received a request from the European Court of Human Rights on this occasion.
