3 teenagers benefit from Georgian amnesty

By Sarah Gale | Project Leader

Last week, Nino Chubabria, director of the Mkurnali project for homeless teens in Tbilisi, received a call at midnight to go and collect two boys who were about to be released from prison there and then.  She went with the charity's lawyer, who has secured the release not only of these two, but also of a third prisoner in the previous week. 

All three owe their freedom to a government amnesty, but also to the utterly professional and committed work of the Mkurnali lawyer, who is paid by St Gregory's Foundation.  The residents at the Mkurnali house laid on a special meal to make the three new arrivals feel welcome.  The lawyer continues to work on behalf of eight more young prisoners, who the lawyer has successfully proved have been unjustly imprisoned so that they can benefit from a government amnesty.

 We are delighted that Mkurnali is able to offer these boys a home and a new start in life, and we are also grateful to you for your help.  Obviously, three more residents means three more mouths to feed.  For them release from prison is just the start.  They need time to gain vocational training and ultimately a job.  In the meantime, with your help, Mkurnali will continue to look after them.
