At Gori Regional Court, U.S. Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan reiterated that strengthening rule of law in Georgia continues to be a high priority for the U.S. Government.
“This is reflected through the work of the 30 offices and agencies of the U.S. Mission to Georgia, many of which work with Georgian partners to build and strengthen the country’s democratic institutions.
Specifically, the U.S. Department of Justice’s work with the Gori court to improve practices addressing domestic violence cases, jury selection, continuous court, and better evidentiary processes and USAID’s new rule of law program to help courts throughout Georgia become more responsive to the needs of their communities.
According to U.S Ambassador, the heart-breaking events in Ukraine do not diminish the U.S. Government’s ability to uphold its commitments to Georgia.
“On the contrary, we are determined to continue supporting the Georgian people’s efforts to build democracy and to pursue their Euro-Atlantic aspirations,” Ambassador Degnan said.
