Georgian government has submitted amendments to law on occupation2013-02-20 11:43
Government of Georgia has submitted to the parliament a bill draft to soften the law "On the occupied territories", the Interfax reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The bill draft provides a fine of GEL 400 (about $ 300) for an administrative penalty for citizens entering the territory of Georgia through the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In the case of repeated violations of detainees will be prosecuted and punished including imprisonment for a term of 2 to 4 years.
Recall, information that the government of Bidzina Ivanishvili was going to soften the law "On Occupied Territories", under which every foreigner who enters Georgia through the Abkhazian or South Ossetian territory can be sentenced to four years in prison, was reported in early February.
In addition to amendments to the law, 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", Georgian State Minister for Reintegration Paata Zakareishvili said. "They do not love the name of our ministry - "reintegration". We are ready to change it, but it must be approved by the president.
