UN Council for Human Rights’ report causing discrepancies2011-02-03 12:31
UN Council for Human Rights is discussing a regular report on Georgia, - Echo of Caucasus reports.
There were some discrepancies between Russian and Georgian representatives in the course of discussing the problems of human rights in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Georgian representative stated that Tbilisi cannot assume obligations on respecting human rights in Abkhazia and South Ossetia because of the continuing Russian occupation.
"Georgia's statements on the occupation of the specified territories are absurd. Russia does not exercise any governing functions in the specified countries and holds no control over their governing bodies established in a democratic way", - Russian representative declared in response.
South-Ossetian ombudsman David Sanakoyev was present at the discussion of the problems of Russia-Georgia relationship.
Georgia accepted about 100 reproofs stated during the discussion, including, in particular, those considering the eviction and resettlement of refugees, living conditions in prisons and problems of the independent judicial system and freedom of media. Tbilisi is going to draw up a special report on 60 reproofs, including those on the part of Russia. Georgia declined five recommendations referring to the wrong information contained in them.
