Public Defender Requests Investigation of the Prisoner’s Ill-Treatment

28.12.2011
Public Defender petitioned to the Chief Prosecutor of Georgia to start preliminary investigation on ill-treatment of the convicted Giorgi Okropiridze by the personnel of the Prison # 18.

The Public Defender’s office reported to the IPN that on December 24, 2011 representatives of the Public Defender visited jail hospital # 18 and met convicted Giorgi Okropiridze.

According to Okropiridze’s clarification, he sent application to the European Court of Human Rights in April of 2011 due to his criminal case and health problems. In October, the Court sent instructions to the penitentiary department to provide the convicted with the medical treatment.

According to the Public Defender’s Office, on December 1, 2011 the convicted was placed in jail hospital. Since then, Okropiridze had been systematically beaten, insulted and intimidated by the head of regime service Aleksandre Tolordava, head of security service Giorgi Avsanjishvili and other personnel. The head of social service Zurab Bulbulashvili also threatened him with imposing additional punishment on him.

The explanation statement of Okropiridze clearly describes the fact of ill-treatment against him which the Ombudsman forwarded to the Chief Prosecutor’s Office.
