In Gldani prison, three Ossetians sentenced to life imprisonment on charges of committing a terrorist act in Gori have stopped the hunger strike, the OSInform reports.


Ossetian prisoners stopped the hunger strike after the staff of the Ministry of Justice of Georgia visited them in the prison and promised to review their cases.

Three Ossetians accused of committing a terrorist act have announced a protest along with other prisoners - in total about 70 people, demanding revision of their cases and re-appointment hearings.

Last week it was reported that 30 inmates of the Gobustan prison in Azerbaijan sentenced to death had announced a hunger strike.

The other day, a prisoner sentenced to life imprisonment Ali Guliyev sent an appeal to the ombudsman Elmira Suleymanova, MP Ali Guseynli, human rights activists and the media with a call to reconsider the cases of those sentenced to death.

The head of the Public Relations Service of the Penitentiary Service of the Ministry of Justice Mehman Sadigov said that a few inmates had declared a hunger strike.

In Gobustan prison there are about 700 prisoners sentenced to long prison terms. Of them there are about 260 prisoners sentenced to life imprisonment.
