TBILISI, September 24 (Itar-Tass) — Inmates of one more prison in Georgia, Ksani detention centre situated 40 kilometers away from Tbilisi, said on Monday they had been beaten and tortured. Several people serving a prison term in it contacted Tbilisi’s Channel Nine television by telephone and said “many inmates have been beaten and abused over the recent months and years”.
According to them, “electric shock has been used against them in certain cases”. “Earlier one of the inmates died of abuse,” they said. The prisoners appealed to the public with the request “to look into the situation in that prison and make accountable the officials involved in tortures and abuse”.
Mass actions of protest began in Tbilisi after two television stations aired on September 18-19 graphic videos of guards abusing prisoners. The minister responsible for Georgia’s prisons, Khatuna Kalmakhelidze, resigned on September 19. Bacho Akhalaya was sacked on Thursday.
