As explained by "Georgia-News", we are talking about recommendations for reforming the judicial system, which were given by the European Commissioner after his visit to Georgia in April of this year. After that trip Hammarberg wrote the report, which focused on the human rights situation and the justice system in Georgia. According to Hammarberg, today in Georgia they must step up efforts to protect against unlawful interference into the work of the court.
"The study was particularly acute this year and later the Georgian authorities took responsibility for a number of changes in the direction of protecting human rights, including the policy of criminal law, but despite this, nothing realy changed. Society konws nothing about the current work" - said a lawyer of "National Council" Roin Hidzhakadze in an interview.
"National Council" fully shares the view of Thomas Hammarberg, said Hidzhakadze. The organization urges the authorities to immediately implement the legislative changes in criminal law.
