The situation in the boarding house, about which so much has been talked about recently, will try to correct the Bishop of Bodbe, Reverend Jacob

TBILISI, June 16 – Sputnik. In the boarding house for children in Ninotsminda (Samtskhe-Javakheti region), which has recently become the center of public attention, 19 educators will remain, the new head of the institution, Bishop of Bodbe, Reverend Yakov, told reporters.

At the beginning of the week, Vladyka Yakov replaced the Monk Spiridon as head of the boarding school. According to him, until recently, more than 40 educators worked in the boarding house, but after personnel cleaning their number will be reduced by almost half.

“At this stage, 19 educators will remain. Let those who want to leave, we are not keeping anyone. And those who remain will have full service, they will not need anything. We must protect the best interests of the children,” Vladyka said.

At the same time, Reverend Yakov noted that he was ready to meet with the Public Defender Nino Lomjaria in Tbilisi.

“Personally, I have never said that I will not let the Public Defender in. I say that I will definitely meet with her in Tbilisi. I have no problems with this, even though I can meet tomorrow,” the reverend noted.

The day before, Lomjaria appealed to the Patriarchate of Georgia with a request to enable the Public Defender’s office to fulfill its mandate in the Ninotsminda boarding school. She expressed hope that after the change of the boarding school management, the Public Defender will no longer have problems in this regard.

“Now we have no problems with who will enter and who will not. The children have received a huge trauma. So many children have been together and suddenly many have left, we must take this into account. After that, coming and asking questions is a problem. and that’s all, “said the Monk Yakov.

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

In early June, the Tbilisi City Court 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.
