Human rights activists demand to punish the guilty of August war

2009-10-05 10:25

Human Rights Watch demands to call to liability those, who violated laws of war, causing many civilian deaths and injuries and widespread destruction of civilian property in August war.


"The international community is largely focusing on who fired the first shot, but the need for justice should not be ignored," said Holly Cartner, Europe and Central Asia director at Human Rights Watch.

The organisation reminds that, according to the EU report, all the parties [Georgia, Russia, South Ossetia] violated international human rights and humanitarian laws.

"The people whose lives were ruined by fighting are still waiting for justice. It's hard to imagine how there could be any real reconciliation without it.", Cartner said.

Previously Georgia Times reported that Heidi Tagliavini's international commission on investigation of August war published the final report. Georgian side was called responsible for unleashing the conflict in South Ossetia, Russia was blamed for the excessive use of force.
