• Gldani prison №8 in Tbilisi
Gldani prison and detention center on the outskirts of Tbilisi - the largest in Georgia, there are about four thousand people. The penitentiary system of Georgia, constantly criticized by the opposition and human rights activists, is subject to the same stringent changes in due time the Georgian police.
From prison facilities carefully knocked the spirit of "thug zone", orders are given contingent of "inmates" are very tough, but fair. Thieves' laws are destroyed at the root. Here describes the situation in Georgian prisons and areas of eyewitnesses.
"The only type of behavior, which roll is cultural and human. Will behave culturally, moderately talkative and active, you will live in a neat and clean environment - and no problems. Contingent, of course, is different, and sometimes themselves have to stand up for themselves not only in word but in his fist. Such incidents administration recognizes immediately and severely punished. To do this, even snitches is not necessary, all of the camera. So the situation has changed dramatically in recent years, about 10 years ago, with the money on the zone can be everything: eat well, drink, drugs, and even bring women to have had no problem. They all had telephones and svidanki were in full-time and poorly controlled. Now, it's all in the history and it is simply impossible. "
According to prison №8 Director David drove me a bunch of few Georgians severe type. Taking pictures allowed only in the public reception, and at the entrance to the very prison camera away, then sending the photos taken "their" photographer for the news magazine of the Ministry of Corrections, Probation and Legal Assistance. Away for nothing - I have removed all the same that he had seen with his own eyes, and it would be virtually indistinguishable from email me. Well, in a strange monastery with its charter, not walk.
