The visit of the Special Rapporteur of the UN Council on Human Rights on the right to peaceful meetings Maina Cyai to Georgia lasted from 6 to 13 February. According to RIA.ru, the report of the Special Rapporteur of the UN Council on Human Rights Maina Chiaia in Georgia has confirmed that this country is "very far from the image of "an outpost of democracy and human rights" about which she is trying to claim", was said in the report of the Department of Press and Information of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.
The Special Rapporteur of the UN Council on Human Rights on the right to peaceful assembly Maina Cyai was in Georgia from 6 to 13 February. At the end of the trip the rapporteur issued an official press release in which he had pointed to a number of serious shortcomings hindering the implementation of a group of rights in the country.
"Cyai has noted a large number of violations in the activities of the political parties: the amendment to the law on political parties, adopted by the Parliament of Georgia in 2011, sharply limiting political freedoms; atmosphere of fear arranged for the opposition; harassment of activists; squeezing the parties from the political arena; impunity for violators of political rights. According to the rapporteur, the restrictive measures are intended to push out individual leaders from the struggle in the parliamentary and presidential, opposition to Saakashvili's regime", said in a statement.
According to VZGLIAD, the rapporteur has failed not to mention the issue of suppression peaceful protests. In particular, the press release contains the appeal to the Georgian authorities to re-investigate dispersal of demonstrations on May 26, 2011 more impartially, as well as to punish those guilty of abuse of authority, noting the regular use of administrative detention to put pressure on those who dare to resort to protest actions. The report also indicates a significant number of cases of ill-treatment of protesters and the detained persons by law enforcement officers.
Russian Foreign Ministry also recalled that large-scale human rights violations in Georgia - such as torture, law enforcement agencies lawlessness, the lack of an independent judiciary, discrimination and oppression of ethnic minorities, etc. - have been noted when Georgia had been passing the procedure of the Universal Periodic Review as part of the UN Council for Human Rights in January 2011.
