The penitentiary institution specially created for high-ranking officials will not exist anymore - Tea Tsulukiani

The penitentiary institution specially created for high-ranking officials will not exist anymore, said Tea Tsulukiani, the Minister of Justice at the briefing.

According to her, the so-called Matrosov Prison is already cleared out of prisoners

“Anyone familiar with the so-called Matrosov building knows it is very old, the prisoners themselves will say so or those who visited the place at least once, even as a lawyer. Last year, we planned to liquidate the place as a result of outdated infrastructure, the interest of prisoners and the priority of human rights. All the convicts or accused who were in #9 are transported to the rehabilitated buildings on the territory of Rustavi Penitentiary Institutions #12 and #16 yesterday”, - said Tea Tsulukiani.
