Opposition urges Council of Europe to evaluate amendments to Georgian laws

2009-07-09 21:08

Georgian radical opposition believes the new draft laws the government has recently proposed are aimed at increasing repressions against political opponents: e.g. amendments to the law "On Assembly and Manifestation" stipulating more stringent rules of conducting rallies and manifestations.


At today's press conference Eka Beselia, For Fair Georgia Secretary General demanded that these draft laws be submitted to the Council of Europe Venice Commission for examination.

"I wish Venice Commission examined these documents and made a statement as to how they comply with Georgia's commitments to the Council of Europe", - Beselia remarked.

According to her the government has increased persecution of dissidents. Over three months since the start of rallies in Tbilisi 116 persons have been arrested, 33 of them have been criminally sentenced, 41 - were sentenced in administrative proceedings and other 41 were fined.

During rally dispersion over 200 persons were injured but no police officer in charge of that was punished, Beselia stated.
