PHR Protects the Rights of a Child

08 July 2020 PHR Protects the Rights of a Child

On July 7, the Tbilisi City Court decided a case litigated by Partnership for Human Rights (PHR). PHR, under the USAID/PROLoG-funded project “Strengthening Child Access to Justice in Georgia,” was protecting the rights of a child, placed in the quarantine zone, despite having a suitable place for self-isolation with the parent. On June 27, the family returned to Georgia from the U.S. and was taken to the quarantine zone, without adequate living conditions for the child. According to the government’s regulation, instead of quarantine, the child should be placed in self-isolation, though, due to the high number of violation of self-isolation rules, they were placed in quarantine. Since, they had a house suitable for self-isolation, they requested to be transferred; also the issue of suitable nutritional support and the child’s psychological well-being was raised, but their request was rejected without any basis.  

With the help of PHR, they addressed the Tbilisi City Court. On July 7, the court heard the case, and, taking into account the best interest of the child, granted PHR's request, and the family was transferred to self-isolation. PHR continues to provide this type of legal assistance to children and their guardians.
