Abuses against Prisoners in Georgia
September 14, 2006

This 101-page report documents the conditions in which the majority of the country’s 13,000 prisoners are being held. In many facilities, prisoners live in severely overcrowded, filthy and poorly-ventilated cells. In the last two years, the prison population has nearly doubled due to the routine use of pretrial detention, even for nonviolent offences. Nearly two-thirds of the country’s prisoners are still awaiting trial. In many facilities, conditions of detention constitute degrading treatment in violation of Georgia’s own laws and its international human rights obligations.
