Georgia won't abolish law "on occupied territories"2013-04-18 14:24
Georgian State Minister for Reintegration Paata Zakareishvili has denied the information spread by some media that the law "on occupied territories" could be abolished, the Armenia Today reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"I categorically deny this information, we won't abolish the law, only mitigate. You can see that we are considering this issue for the second month," said Zakareshvili.
In early March, Georgian Parliament started the process of mitigation of the punishment for "illegal entry" into the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Supporters of the president Mikheil Saakashvili have called the government's initiative "unacceptable concession to Moscow."
On April 2, the Parliamentary Committee on Legal Affairs approved the government's initiative on "partial decriminalization of crossing the Abkhaz and South Ossetian sections of the Georgian-Russian border from Russia."
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.
