2009-11-18 15:51

PACE calls on Tskhinval to immediately release four Georgian teenagers arrested on November 4 for illegal border-crossing and bearing of arms.


According to the statement by the co-rapporteurs of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on Georgia Mátyás Eörsi and Luc Van den Brande "The arrest and prolonged detention of these young people will only increase the tensions and bad blood in the region", News Georgia reports.

"This incident once more underscores the need for full and unimpeded access for international monitors on both sides of the administrative boundary of the breakaway region of South Ossetia, as we have repeatedly called for in our reports and Assembly resolutions", - the statement reads.

It will be remembered, four underage citizens of Georgia were detained in Tskhinval on November 4, at around 23.00 by the local police officers. Four hand grenades and explosive materials were taken away from them.

The Georgian side regards Tskhinval's actions as kidnapping.
