The Interior Ministry of Georgia disclaims a number of paragraphs of a report by Amnesty International for 2010, concerning the implementation of the EU orders by the EU countries in 2006.


Georgia is mentioned twice, and is said to purchase torturing equipment [police electric shock] from Germany and the Czech Republic.

The Interior Ministry highlights the report cites to an unconfirmed source, Georgia is mentioned in one vague sentence, and the Internet site, mentioned in the report, wasn't found; and disclaims purchase of the aforesaid equipment from both Germany and the Czech Republic.

The Ministry adds the Amnesty International quoted the UN special rapporteur Nowak in regard to torture precedents in 2005, and notes the quote wasn't presented fully, as Nowak mentioned not only the facts of torture, but also positive processes, , started after the Rose Revolution and aimed to eradicate tortures.

The Interior Ministry claims that Georgia "successfully overcame tortures in police and detention centres" and hails the EU's will to control of export and import of the equipment, able of being used for tortures. It adds it has no such equipment, thought it's used in everyday practice of American and European police, and the use of the equipment it actually has, ir strictly regulated and controlled.
