A number of non-governmental Georgian organizations demand holding Parliament hearings on the case of "Georgia against Russian Federation" that was recently considered in the Hague international court.

The authors of the document underline that the parliamentary hearings must be attended by both representatives of the country's executive branch and those persons that took part in executing the lawsuit and protecting Georgia's interests in the Hague court.
The authors of the address also added that the specified case is connected with the events in the 90s and the war in 2008, so it presents a great interest for the whole country.
Let us remind you that the decision of the UN International Court in Hague in respect of Russia and Georgia was revealed on April 1. It was said that the consideration of Georgia's lawsuit against Russia does not fall within the competence of the UN International court in Hague. Such decision of the international court means that the proceedings on Georgia's case against RF will be ceased.
Let us remind you that on 12 August 2008, official Tbilisi filed a lawsuit against Russia with the UN International Court saying that since 1990, Russia has been "discriminating" the Georgian population directly, as well as with Abkhazia and South Ossetia's support, which is the violation of the 1965 International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
In October 2008, UN International Court announced a decision on temporary measures. The court called on both parties, Georgia and Russia, to refrain from all acts of racial discrimination and their support. The court decided that the parties are to assist the rendering of humanitarian aid to those in need, as well as never to resort to measures leading to dispute aggravation. The court also obliged both parties to ensure the population's security, the right of freedom of movement and settlement in the context of the state boundaries and protect the property of the displaced and refugees.
