Housing question to Bidzina Ivanishvili2012-10-15 20:15
The party "Free Georgia" and "The civil movement of refugees of Georgia" urge the new government to pay attention to the problem of forcedly displaced persons from Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region, particularly the lack of housing for them. Today a briefing on this issue was held. The organizers of the event were the Secretary General of "Free Georgia" Aleko Shalamberidze and speaker of "The civil movement of refugees of Georgia" Mzia Korsantia.
Secretary General began his speech by congratulating Bidzina Ivanishvili with the victory of the coalition "Georgian Dream" in parliamentary election. He wished him success in the development of the country. Then he stressed that during the reign of Saakashvili the refugees have repeatedly undergone the most brutal terror, they had not undergone even during their exile from Abkhazia. "They have been often brutally evicted by reinforced police units. Authorities thus have once again shown their true colors. Saakashvili has shown that he hated the citizens. This was an unprecedented mass terror against the citizens of the country, whose wounds have not healed. Today, when the terrorist government has changed, the refugees acquired a hope to normally arrange their life and to heal the
wounds", Aleko Shalamberidze said.
To resolve all the problems the party "Free Georgia" and members of the NGO "The civil movement of refugees" offer different initiatives. First, all refugees who have left without shelter as a result of terror Caakashvili must immediately get housing. Second, the government must build expenses for all those who have not been placed in compact settlements into the new budget, as well as to provide them with 300 GEL per month for rental apartments. Government also must allocate this amount to those who had to rent an apartment on their own money for over 20 years or lived at the relatives. Third, all the employees of the Ministry for Refugees, who somehow contributed to Saakashvili's terror by their actions or negligence, must be dismissed. And the cases of those, who have had criminal activity, must be investigated.
Today Georgia is home to over 90,000 refugees. Some of them still do not have their own homes and have to take shelter in sentry boxes, unfinished houses, or at distant relatives. With the onset of cold housing question becomes urgent.
