The issue of prisoners was discussed in the framework of MPRI

The issue of prisoners, jailed in Georgia and South Ossetia was discussed at the meeting of the participants of Mechanisms for preventing and responding to incidents (MPRI).

According to the Deputy Plenipotentiary Presidential Envoy of the RSO for post-conflict settlement Khokh Gagloyty, the South Ossetian party claimed at the meeting that was expecting the release of the citizens of South Ossetia jailed in Georgia.

"We ыфшв that we expected the unconditional release of our hostages, kept in the prisons of Georgia - said Gagloyty. – They are, first of all, Kochiev, Valiev and Zaseev. We have noted that we consider them the hostages of power structures of Georgia. The reluctance of the Georgian leadership to solve the issue of releasing these citizens is the reluctance to turn the page, the legacy of which is the imprisonment of these three persons in Georgia. And this fact is not conducive, to put it mildly, to the objective dialogue between South Ossetia and Georgia for some situational issues. "
Gagloyty has noted that during the meeting the South Ossetian participants provided the information about the citizens of Georgia, imprisoned in South Ossetia.

"At the previous meeting the Georgian participants asked to provide them the information about the citizens of Georgia, jailed in South Ossetia - said Gagloyty. - We have provided the materials along with the medical reports on the state of health of the citizens. At one time, when the Georgian representatives were asked to give medical opinions on the state of health of the South Ossetian citizens imprisoned in Georgia, they referred to the fact that they could not provide these materials without the consent of the prisoners that sounded somewhat unclear. I asked them how could be fixed the consent of the prisoners to the issuance of a medical report on the state of their health, but the Georgian side could not answer my question".

In the course of the meeting were also discussed issues of security on the border between South Ossetia and Georgia. The situation in this regard, according to Gagloyty, was found to be satisfactory.
