Georgian opposition demands openness
Georgian opposition parties demand the authorities to make the claims of Georgia to Russia, which it sends to the Strasbourg court, accessible - the newspaper look.
The idea is that the content of the claim of Georgia against Russia on the events of August 2008, which the authorities have applied to the European Court of Human Rights, was not publicized to the public.
Tbilisi MP from the oppositional Republican Party Tinatin Khidasheli said at the briefing that "it is unclear why the authorities of Georgia decided to make the information about the claims against Russia in international courts secret".
"Russia knows Georgian claims, but the citizens of Georgia are like in a vacuum, and even qualified people can not give their own authority any advice" - she said.
Georgia accuses Russia of crimes against humanity during the 2008 war.
However, the Hague tribunal denied Georgia in considering a similar lawsuit.
