Georgia to challenge census in Abkhazia

2011-02-22 14:05

13816.jpegA population census has begun in Abkhazia to the discontent of vice speaker of Georgian parliament Paata Davitaya, - GHN reports.


Davitaya calls on Georgian ministry of foreign affairs to adopt an extraordinary statement.

 "Yesterday a population census began in Abkhazia for local authorities to estimate the number of people residing in the republic and finalize passportization. I would like to emphasize that the census in "occupied Abkhazia" started on the days when Russia occupied Georgia in 1921", - he remarked at a plenary session in parliament.

As Davitaya estimates, after the war in 1992-1993 nearly 500 thousand people were evicted from the country, i.e. the whole population of the republic. At the same time vice speaker of Georgian parliament does not specify who will undergo this census in Abkhazia.

"It would be very good if the ministry of foreign affairs and the foreign policy committee made a statement on the issue declaring Abkhazia's census illegitimate and informing the international community on the matter", -Davitaya stated.
