Georgia: UN condemns prisoner abuses exposed in television footage

The United Nations has condemned abuses committed against prisoners in Georgia that were exposed in videos made public this week, and urged that the violations be investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice. “We call on the Government to ensure that all allegations of such human rights violations – and not only the ones exposed in these videos – are promptly, impartially and effectively investigated and that perpetrators are brought to justice,” a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Rupert Colville, told reporters in Geneva. http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=42949&Cr=Georgia&Cr1= (UN News Centre)
