EU Statement on Georgia prisoner abuse

by | Sep 20, 2012

The European Union Wednesday issued a statement regarding the ongoing scandal surrounding prisoner abuse in Georgia:

“The EU Delegation is shocked by the appalling footage of abuses committed against inmates in Gldani prison. It is of vital importance that these and other incidents are thoroughly and transparently investigated and that those responsible are held to account.

Ill-treatment of prisoners is a very serious Human Rights violation, as the Public Defender has declared, and we continue to demand that the Georgian Authorities make every effort to address such human rights violations effectively.”
