” Today, the European Court of Human Rights of Strasbourg, Europe, made an unprecedented decision for Georgia. With this decision, the European Court acknowledged the impartiality of the Georgian judiciary system and the fairness of its decision in the case discussed. Through this decision, the European Court of Human Rights declared its confidence in our judicial system. This confidence sets the ground to launch the fourth wave of judicial reform and, thus, further strengthen our democracy. By this judgment, the European Court of Human Rights once again underlined two principles on which democracy, and Europe, stand: inviolability of property rights and human life. As the guarantor of these rights under the Constitution, I fully share the spirit of the European Court of Human Rights and the necessity to implement these principles. I also believe that Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Expression, as the main pillars of democracy, will not be threatened in Georgia, “- said Salome Zurabishvili.
