Hammarberg arrived in Tbilisi

2009-12-17 11:52

Thomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, arrived in Tbilisi last night. He announced on Thursday he intends to go to Tskhinvali again and negotiate with South Ossetian leaders on release of two Georgian teenagers.


According to the Commissioner, he arrived to settle the problem, as, in his view, innocent people, in this case - teenagers- suffer because of the political purposes.

Prior to his visit to Tbilisi Hammarberg visited Moscow and discussed the situation in Caucasus with Foreign Ministry representatives.

Georgia hopes this time Hammarberg's visit will bring more results and the South Ossetian side will fulfill the promise given to the Commissioner and release the teenagers.

Teenagers from Georgian village Tirdznisi were arrested in South Ossetia on November 4th. According to the South Ossetian side, they had grenades and explosive matters and they were sent to organize terrorist acts.

Georgia claims the charges absurd and demands immediate release of the arrested.
