Georgian parliament committees to consider the issue of genocide against Circassians. 17253.jpegFour parliamentary committees of Georgia are going to consider the issue of recognizing the genocide against Circassians today. This was reported by GHN with reference to the information revealed by head of the Committee for Expatriate Communities and Caucasus Nugzar Tsiklauri.


A decree on the matter has already been prepared by committees and now it's time to solve the issue of considering this document at the plenary session of parliament. If the deputies support the issue it will be submitted for consideration of the rest of the parliamentary deputies. The Circassian delegation's appeal to the Parliament of Georgia with the request of admitting the genocide against Circassians on Russia's part was made last year.

A relevant document was prepared in the course of a conference held in Tbilisi. There, Circassians called to recognize them as a symbol of ethnic cleansing.

One of these days, Speaker of the Georgian Parliament David Bakradze expressed an opinion that it is so far unclear whether the supreme legislative body of the country will take a political decision on recognizing the genocide against Circassians.

"Our scientists have found interesting materials but the matter should first be submitted for the committee's consideration and only afterwards one may talk of any political decision", - he added.
