Parliament to hear Justice Minister's report on Georgia v. Russia case

Georgian Justice Minister Gocha Lortkipanidze will brief four parliamentary committees on the Georgian Government’s efforts to protect its interests in Georgia v. Russia (II) case in the Strasbourg Court.

The MPs will hear Justice Minister’s report on February 8.

Earlier, the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) delivered its judgment in the inter-State case of Georgia v. Russia (II) concerning the August War 2008.

The Grand Chamber judgment reads, “the Russian Federation had exercised “effective control” over South Ossetia, Abkhazia, and the “buffer zone” during the period from 12 August to 10 October 2008, the date of the official withdrawal of the Russian troops.”

The Court concluded that “the events occurring after the cessation of hostilities – that is, following the ceasefire agreement of 12 August 2008 – had fallen within the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation. It found a number of violations of the Convention.”
