Georgian citizenship to one’s death

2010-12-23 19:51

Georgian citizenship to one's deathGetting Georgian citizenship is no problem. From now on, it is much difficult to be deprived of it on one's own free will so as to become a national of another country. The parliament of the Caucasian republic decided to make amendments to the law "On citizenship". They will primarily cover those Georgians who have not undergone compulsory military training in Sakartvelo and will have to do duty to their motherland in other ways. For instance, they will have to bear the status of a Georgian citizen until they die. Thus, those who are looking forward to a bright future will no longer


have the chance of dodging military service in the ranks of the Georgian army.

The procedure of obtaining Georgian citizenship is very simple. One can apply for it on-line, being far away from the "territorially integral" republic. The application for Georgian citizenship will be considered by President Mikheil Saakashvili in person, who will return a relevant verdict basing on the republic's national interests and the merits of the pretender to the right of having a Georgian passport.

As practice shows, there are not so many people who are eager to hold this bird in their hands when there are two more birds waiting in the bush in the form of another country's citizenship. Georgian legislation does not prohibit double nationality; still, from now on, one will have to take pains to gain the desired happiness. Luck will only be with those who have done their duty by undergoing compulsory military service.

Those who have not done it for well-grounded reasons based on creed or certain ethic norms will be doomed to Georgian citizenship for life. In this way, they will annually pay for their sins, illegally incriminated by their motherland. Besides, these new amendments go openly against the very law that permits possessing two passports.

"The law has got one serious drawback concerning those who cannot undergo military service in any army for some reasons. These reasons, by the way, are accepted smoothly in European countries. For instance, these are people with certain religious convictions. As for their ethnic ground, we have recorded no national discrimination in the Georgian army over the last five or six years but oppressions had taken place before.
