"Each colony and prison must have at least one computer," the minister said. In his words, after the creation of a unified computer network of the penitentiary system, a databank on prisoners and a search system to get the required information will be created. Each colony and prison will have their own databases, and information there will be refreshed daily, the Novosti-Georgia agency said.
"When an amnesty or pardon is considered, the data on prisoners, on their behavior in prison will be received almost at once, which is very important," the minister said.
Mr. Papuashvili said now the situation in most Georgian prisons is catastrophic, but there are grounds to say it will be improved with the help of foreign partners.
