A memorandum of understanding was signed with the Georgian Post on 14 November 2011, under which the Georgian penitentiary system embraced yet another service as part of the ongoing penitentiary reforms.
The Georgian Post now offers special discount rates for sending parcels to pre-trial and convicted inmates from any region of Georgia.
The new service simplified the parcel delivery procedures saving many families the extra cost involved in this process.
A list of permitted items to send to people in prison is visibly displayed in every postal office of Georgia.
The second phase of the social project envisages the possibility of introducing SMS messaging for immediately notifying the sender that a parcel has been delivered to the recipient.
Beside the existing service of parcel delivery, the aforesaid additional service is operational in all penitentiary establishments.
