The 29th day of protest – refugees threaten with hunger strike and the Court

The 29th days of protest - IDPs continue their rally in the foyer and outside the Ministry of Health.

Refugees from Abkhazia have been unsuccessfully seeking housing for almost a month. The protesters blame the special commission responsible for this issue in corruption.

Besides, the protesters demand the involvement of IDPs and NGOs in the commission. Otherwise they threaten to renew the hunger strike and appeal to the court.

"The process of apartments distribution should be suspended. We must set up a new commission with the representatives from all parties, as well as NGOs and the Public Defender"s Office. And most importantly with IDPs. The work of commission must be transparent. Let them inform us in writing form that these apartments do not belong to us. After that, we will turn to the court and let the court decide whether they rely on us or not"- said one of the refugees Pikria Tsalani.
