TBILISI, DFWatch–Georgia’s Public Defender claims his staff witnessed mistreatment of a prisoner.

Ucha Nanuashvili on Friday appealed to the Prosecutor’s Office to start investigation of Prison No 8 in Gldani.

The Ombudsman’s statement says employees visited the prison for a planned inspection tour on December 24. Members of the special preventive group of the Public Defender witnessed how employees of the prison verbally and physically abused a prisoner.

Representatives of the Public Defender spoke with the prisoner and wrote a protocol, which has been sent to the Prosecutor’s Office and the Prison Ministry. None of them have yet responded to the ombudsman’s statement.
