Multinational Georgia, a civil movement, called on NGOs to unite in fight for language purity - Novosti-Gruzia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The working group on fighting "the language of hatred" will work on amendments to the article 142 of the Criminal Code to toughen the punishment for state officials using words instigating discord between nations.
According to the Georgian Yong Lawyers' Association representative Georgi Gotsiridze, the word "negro" President Saakashvili used in talk with customs employees, reveals some manifestations of racial discrimination in society, and the problem must be solved immediately.
He added the NGOs suppose the amendments to the Criminal Code must be introduced in accordance with European standards.
