Scandal around the children’s boarding house: the Patriarchy will appeal the decision in court

If the child does not want to move, then no action can be taken by force, the lawyer of the Patriarchate said.

TBILISI, 11 Jun – Sputnik. The Patriarchate of Georgia intends to appeal the interim decision of the Tbilisi City Court to remove all children with disabilities from the boarding house in Ninotsminda (Samtskhe-Javakheti region) next week, lawyer Edisher Karchava told reporters.

Last week, the Tbil City Court satisfied the claims of the non-governmental organization Partnership for Human Rights (PHR), instructing the relevant government departments to immediately begin transferring children from the boarding house, based on the possible risks to the life and health of minors.

“Social workers and psychologists took some effort to convince the six children, in connection with whom the court made a decision, that they need to be transferred, that is, they did not want to move. The priority is that if the child does not want to move, then no action cannot be taken by force. Therefore, we think that the court made a hasty decision, “Karchava said.

The boarding school for children in Ninotsminda, which is under the patronage of the Patriarchate, attracted the attention of the general public and government structures after the Public Defender’s statement about cruelty against children in the boarding house and that its representatives were not allowed into the institution. Based on this statement, the Georgian Interior Ministry launched an investigation.

According to the latest data, the Agency for Assistance to Victims, Victims of Trafficking and State Guardianship ensured the withdrawal of more than 20 minors from the boarding house, including children with disabilities. According to media reports, about 30 children remain in the institution by this time.
