Parliament of Georgia has softened law "On occupied territories"2013-05-20 12:12
The Parliament of Georgia adopted in the first reading amendments to the law "On occupied territories," according to which the punishment for persons who have entered the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia was mitigated, the News-Georgia reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
73 deputies out of 147 in the Parliament voted for the amendments.
In Georgia, the legislature body includes 150 seats, but three seats are vacant until the announcement of the final results of the midterm election.
Recall, on May 2, during the discussion of amendments to the law "On occupied territories" Parliament of Georgia failed to conduct a vote on the issue. Adoption of amendments was disrupted by the deputies from the "United National Movement" who resorted to procedural tricks for this purpose.
Representatives of the National Movement, who came to the meeting room, were not registered. In connection with this it was not possible to hold the meeting due to lack of quorum.
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."
