People from far-abroad countries afraid to go to SO

2011-02-25 11:50

Employees of humanitarian organizations, as well as the journalists, are afraid to visit South Ossetia because of the danger of being pursuited in Georgia, Echo of Caucasus reports.


Georgian MIA has again stated that visiting Abkhazia and South Ossetia without the Georgian authorities' permission is an official crime.

It puts many employees of international humanitarian and non-governmental organizations working in South Ossetia in a strained situation.  If they come to the territory of the republic from the RF side they will get in prison in Georgia later on.

"Theoretically, I may cross the border between South Ossetia and Russia if I have an invitation from SO and a Russian visa but I won't be able to come to Georgia with a Russian stamp in the passport because they'll put me to prison - their law permits visiting the country only from the side of Gori", - says coordinator of the IKV PAX CHRISTI non-government organization Sinta Depondt.

Georgian authorities have many times arrested the citizens from the CIS countries and far-abroad countries who visited Georgia after their trips to Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
