Georgian parliamentary deputies were bombarded with papers

Activists tried to draw attention to the situation in a boarding house in Ninotsminda, where for several days they have been trying to clarify the issue of child abuse

TBILISI, 11 Jun – Sputnik. Civil activists broke into the balcony of the sitting room of the Georgian parliament and pelted the deputies with pieces of paper from above; the meeting had to be interrupted for several minutes.

On all the pieces of paper that rained down on the parliamentarians, there was an inscription “What is happening in the Ninotsminda boarding house.” Thus, the activists tried to draw attention to the situation in the boarding house, where for several days they have been trying to clarify the issue of child abuse.

“Each meeting should be devoted to what is happening in the Ninotsminda boarding house. The children are still locked there, and you are sitting around,” one of the activists managed to shout before the guards took all the protesters out of the hall.

The bailiffs took the violators from the balcony, and the deputies had to wait until the papers were removed from their tables.

Later, the vice-speaker of the parliament, Gia Volsky, called what was happening in the conference room “a strange performance.”

The scandal around the boarding house for children in Ninotsminda began after the statement of the Public Defender’s office – Nino Lomjaria said that the employees of the Ombudsman’s office were not allowed into the boarding house to check the reports of the inmates about cases of violence.

This week, the Georgian Interior Ministry launched an investigation into alleged child abuse.

The Tbilisi City Court on Saturday satisfied the claims of the Partnership for Human Rights (PHR) NGO, instructing the relevant government departments to immediately begin transferring children from the boarding house to Ninotsminda, based on the possible risks to the life and health of minors.

According to the latest data, the Agency for Assistance to Victims, Trafficking Victims and State Guardianship ensured the withdrawal of 22 minors from the boarding house, including children with disabilities. According to media reports, about 30 children remain in the institution by this time. In turn, the Patriarchate of Georgia has already appealed against the court decision.
