The eviction of the Khatiashvili family from their home in Tbilisi last week has led to outrage in Georgia and accusations that the government is taking an ‘inhumane’ approach towards debt and housing.
This week, we hear from Marina Khatiashvili, who was evicted alongside her family in Tbilisi. We also speak to OC Media journalist and co-director Mariam Nikuradze about the protests surrounding the eviction, and to the Social Justice Centre’s Salome Shubladze about predatory lending in Georgia and the government's handling of the situation.
