Foster Homes Run by Orthodox Church has Residential Style In Georgia
Controversial Bishop Appointed as Head of Church-run Foster Home
Orthodox Patriarch Ilia II on June 14 appointed Bishop Jakob of Bodbe (Konstatine Iakobashvili) as the head of the church-run foster home, replacing Skhalta Bishop Spiridon.
Bishop Jakob's appointment as the head of the orphanage, which drew public attention over the possible cases of physical and sexual violence against the minors, comes as he has actively commented on the controversies surrounding the foster home, infamously remarking previously that "it is not a surprise if a stronger senior uses force on a child who will not understand by a word."
Background: Ninotsminda Orphanage Controversy
The church-run foster home came into the spotlight after representatives of the Public Defender's Office were twice denied a monitoring visit, triggering public outrage and an emergency temporary measure from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
