Human rights standards – how does Georgia look?
TBILISI. 20 September 2013 – Civil society organizations presented a report on Georgia’s compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) to representatives of the Georgian government, Parliament, civil society and international organizations.
The document examines four main areas: discrimination;the rights to physical integrity, liberty and security; access to justice; and the harassment of journalists and the right to free assembly and free elections.
The report is submitted in advance of the 109th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Committee that will take place in Geneva, Switzerland on October 14- November 1, 2013 and where Georgia’s compliance with ICCPR will be examined. This alternative document supplements the government report submitted to the UN Human Rights Committee in October 2012.
The alternative report was developed by a non-governmental coalition with assistance from the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and UNDP.
The coalition unites the leading civil society organizations, including the Analytical Centre for Interethnic Cooperation and Consultation, Penal Reform International, Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association and the International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy.
At the presentation of the report, Inita Paulovica, UNDP Resident Representative,
Vladimir Shkolnikov, OHCHR Senior Advisor for the South Caucasus, AgitMirzoev, Analytical Centre for Interethnic Cooperation and Consultation, Beka Jikia, Penal Reform International, Kakha Kozhoridze, Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association and Nino Janashia, International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy addressed the public.
