The Georgian Foreign Ministry expresses condolences to the family in connection with this great tragedy.
“Based on the high public interest in this issue, we inform you that, having received information about this problem, the Georgian Embassy in Turkey and the Georgian Consulate General in Istanbul, on behalf of the Prime Minister of Georgia, immediately got involved in solving the problem and had intensive communication both with the leadership of the clinic, and with the relevant departments of the Republic of Turkey, about which family members and relatives of the deceased were informed,” the message says.
On November 13, 16-year-old Mariam Gogiashvili died in a Turkish clinic. A month ago, the girl was placed in the intensive care unit of the clinic with a diagnosis of leukemia. A few days ago, a close family member posted a post on social media, from which the public learned that the family owed $44,000 to the clinic, which is why they were not given the body.
