Georgian Parliament supported victims of August war

2008-12-11 12:30

Georgian Parliament allowed young people, suffered in the events of August 2008, to enter institutes and universities without taking state exams. It was made possible with the amendments to the law of higher education, passed at yesterday's extraordinary meeting, Novosti-Gruzia (News-Georgia) informs.


Another bill -on making amendments to Georgian law on privatization of agricultural state lands - was adopted at the second reading.

According to these amendments, people suffered will be granted lands and buildings located on them.

It's worthy noticing that the bill concerns only those who lost homes in the result of August events.

A number of MPs resented. In their view, it is discrimination of internally displaced persons, who left their homes in the result of conflicts in Abkhazia and South Ossetia in early 1990s.

"We help only Saakashvili's refuges. Don't we need to help Shevarnadze's ones?" - the opposition Vice-Speaker said.

The bill will be given its third (final) reading at the nearest plenary meeting.
