During the visit, the delegation assessed progress made in the implementation of the recommendations made by the CPT following the previous visit in 2014. In this context, the delegation paid particular attention to the treatment of persons in police custody and the situation of prisoners in penitentiary establishments, in particular those in high-risk and semi-open prisons, as well as juvenile inmates. In addition, the delegation carried out visits to several psychiatric hospitals and, for the first time in Georgia, to an immigration detention facility.
The main conclusions of the CPT are set out in the executive summary of the report.
In their interim response, the Georgian authorities provide some preliminary information on measures taken to implement the recommendations made in the CPT’s report. The full response is due in September this year.
The CPT report, the interim response of the Georgian authorities and the Strategy/Action Plan have been made public at the request of the Georgian Government.
