Archbishop Iakob of Bodbe said that he had a very frank conversation with the Public Defender and discussed all the problems of Ninotsminda Boarding School.
“We had a very generous, absolutely cordial conversation. We reviewed the problems at the foster home and the situation in general. The Public Defender and I agreed to visit the orphanage maybe next weekend and see the situation. Today social assistants are working there. Please, journalists, end the siege of the boarding school that puts the kids under great stress.
The situation escalated suddenly, and we did not argue over right and wrong. We are just trying to consider the best interests of the children and end this tension on time”, - said Archbishop Iakob after the meeting with Ombudsman.
