2012-04-19 16:29

As reported by the NewsGeorgia citing the press service of the Border Police of Georgian Internal Ministry, the next meeting of the working group of co-operation between Border Police and other agencies in combating drug smuggling takes place today in Tbilisi.


The meeting was attended by representatives of the Border Police and other relevant agencies of 18 countries, as well as representatives of the World Border Organization, the European Commission, the European Union, the UN office to combat drugs in Georgia, the mission of the EU Border Assistance Mission to Moldova and Ukraine, as well as representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Border Police of Georgia.

It should be noted that the problem of drug smuggling is relevant for the South Caucasian country. Thus, in early April this year in Malaysia, two women citizens of Georgia were sentenced on charges of drug smuggling to various terms of imprisonment. The court sentenced Babutsu Gordadze and Darejan Kokhtashvili to six and eight years imprisonment respectively. Both of them were arrested in October 2010 while trying to smuggle 10 kilograms of amphetamine to Malaysia. Under the Malaysia's laws women faced the death penalty.
