Georgia softens the law on occupation2013-02-08 14:35
Government of Bidzina Ivanishvili is going to soften the law "On Occupied Territories", annoying Russia, under which every foreigner who enters Georgia through the Abkhazian or South Ossetian territory can be sentenced to four years in prison, the NG.ru reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to the Georgian State Minister for Reintegration Paata Zakareishvili, under the new rules the offender will be fined for a large sum, which is now being determined, "and only in case of repetition he will be punished through the criminal prosecution".
"I believe that Parliament will soon approve the amendments. This is not a concession, it is a humane act", the Minister told the Izvestiya.
The very name of the Ministry of Reintegration also can be changed.
"Our strategic goal is to even formally deprive the Abkhazians and Ossetians of the opportunity to blame the Georgian side in anything", said Zakareishvili. "They do not love the name of our ministry - "reintegration". We are ready to change it, but it must be approved by the president.
According to Zakareishvili, the proposal to change the name of his office, approved by the government, is lying on the table of president Mikheil Saakashvili for more than two months, but he is hesitating to sign it. Zakareishvili refuses to speak about new name, but he argues that there are no words "reintegration" and "conflict".
