Georgian Delegation in PACE: Implementation of interstate judgments to be CoE common responsibility

“Georgia has won two interstate disputes against Russia. Their implementation is the common responsibility of each member of the Council of Europe,” Mariam Kvrivishvili, a member of the Georgian parliamentary delegation, said in a speech at the PACE winter session.

According to Kvrivishvili, the Parliament of Georgia adopted a resolution on foreign policy earlier this month, which is the first resolution approved by the newly elected parliament. The document presents a new paragraph on the further intensification of efforts in the international disputes against Russia. It is one of the key foreign policy priorities of the Georgian government.

“I want to emphasize that Georgia has won two interstate disputes against Russia. The deportation case is about Russia’s coordinated policy to detain and deport many Georgian citizens. Russia is obliged to pay 10,000,000 euros to Georgia for the moral damage caused to at least 1,500 Georgian citizens. As of today, the decision has not been implemented.

Recently, the ECHR issued a judgment in the Georgia v. Russia war case. Implementation of these intergovernmental decisions is the shared responsibility of each member of the Council of Europe,” Mariam Kvrivishvili declared.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) will discuss the implementation of the judgments of the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) during the second working day of the winter session on Tuesday.
