Convicts` relatives stayed at Geguti prison last night
Patrol police crews, security guards and the relatives of the convicts stayed outside the Geguti colony last night - the police tried to protect the prison territory from possible intrusion of the crowd, which in its turn was controlling the situation as they did not rule out some incidents might happen again. The situation got tense when the crowd noticed emergency ambulance at the prison gate. They wanted more information about the health state of the inmates. The crew of the ambulance explained to them that some of the convicts had health problems due to the last week hunger strike and they would be transferred to hospital for proper treatment.
Over eight hundred convicts went on hunger strike demanding improvement of conditions in prison and the dismissal of the prison director, accusing him of violence. 17 convicts inflicted injuries on their bodies a few days ago, which caused the alarm of their relatives. The convicts asserted they were beaten up by the prison guards.
