“Legal Security of the Country and Legal Struggle to Defend the Sovereignty of Georgia” is a course of public lectures of the Ministry of Justice, which started at the initiative of the Minister of Justice on May 26 in Ambrolauri, Georgia’s Independence Day and will continue throughout the country.
The Minister of Justice Rati Bregadze presented the cycle of public lectures at Kutaisi International University (KIU) and addressed the audience.
“We started the cycle of lectures symbolically on May 26, Independence Day. We want young people, first and foremost, and all stakeholders to get information on what independence means in legal terms; What is being done to ensure that our national sovereignty is maximally protected; Also, what is the path of the state, the people employed in the Ministry of Justice and various public structures to ensure the security of each of us, and the whole world to know that Georgia is an independent, sovereign state and its territories are occupied. The right to say that Russia is an occupier became possible as a result of the successful work of both the government and the Ministry of Justice after the historic decision of the Strasbourg court.
Beka Dzamashvili spoke to the audience about the Ministry of Justice’s difficult but victorious fight in the European Courts of Human Rights in Strasbourg and The Hague against Russia to safeguard Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Moreover, he described the significance of the fact that the Strasbourg’s courts and The Hague recognize the territorial integrity of our nation in the decisions and confirm that Georgia is occupied by Russia.
Also, what legal levers does the Strasbourg court of Georgia provide for the confirmation of the ethnic cleansing of Georgians in the Tskhinvali region by the Russian Federation.
The public lecture was attended by Deputy Ministers of Justice – Tamar Tkeshelashvili, Erekle Gvinianidze, Rector of Kutaisi International University Alexander Tevzadze, Deputy Governors of Imereti, public officials, and students, representatives of academia and cadets.
