The newly-appointed head of the Ninotsminda boarding school, father Jacob, says that Ninotsminda boarding school dwellers are 'alienated and experience feelings of isolation;' however, in his words, this is natural if considering that ''these children have been hostages for two months.''
''The situation must be rectified. This place has been under great pressure for two months. Being hostage for two months had an impact on them. I do not blame you for this, but they were forbidden to go outdoors, which is why they are now alienated, experiencing feelings of isolation. The ombudsman has communicated with these children for the first time since 2018; when I first interacted with them, they were like this with me too,'' father Jacob said.
The public defender has visited Ninotsminda boarding school children for the first time since 2018.
