Georgia files lawsuit to Court in Strasbourg on teen detention2009-11-17 13:21
Georgia filed a lawsuit to the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg against Russia in view of detention of four teenagers from Tirdznisi village of Gori district in South Ossetia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
It was stated by Deputy Minister of Justice of Georgia Tinatin Burdzhaliani at today's briefing.
The letter brings up other similar facts including detention of 16 residents of Gremiskhevi village and 5 residents of Karel district, now released, that were charged with illegal border crossing.
Burdzhaliani remarked that as early as on August 12 2008 the Court in Strasbourg compelled Russia to keep from "violating human rights" in the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The Georgian side submitted evidence to the court that allegedly prove Russia's non-compliance with this commitment.
Russia recognized independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia on August 26 2008 following the entry of Georgian troops to South Ossetia on August 8. As a result of Georgia's military aggression Tskhinval, the capital of the republic, was almost completely destroyed and over 200 civilians were killed. Russia responded by enforcing peace in Georgia and protecting Russian citizens.
On November 4 the officers of the RSO Interior Ministry detained four underage citizens of Georgia. It was found out they live in Tirdznisi village of Gori district of Georgia and their entry to the territory of South Ossetia was illegal. The teenagers were arrested in Tskhinval having four grenades and explosive materials that were seized.
