2012-11-02 13:06

A special working group to study the cases of political prisoners was established under the Committee on Human Rights and Civil Integration of the Georgian parliament, the IA Regnum reported.


According to the press service of the parliament of Georgia, such a decision was taken at a meeting of the Committee on Human Rights in Kutaisi on November 1.

The working group includes 15 representatives of non-governmental organizations. It must reconsider the lists of the political prisoners provided by non-governmental organizations and then transfer the relevant documentation to the Committee for the Protection of Human Rights and Civil Integration.

To date, the list of political prisoners includes 185 people, but the chairman of the Committee Eka Beselia does not exclude that the list may be incomplete and as a result may be extended.

Recall, on October 23, the new speaker of the Georgian parliament David Usupashvili stated that the parliament was going to establish an investigation commission to investigate the "crimes" committed during the rule of President Mikheil Saakashvili.

He also said that the new political leadership was planning to complete the investigation of the case within the year. "We believe that during the first year of management we must deal with all of such cases, to think about the future", David Usupashvili said.
