In view of consideration of the standards of application of the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights by the Common Courts of Georgia, the Supreme Court hosted the meeting.
The legislative and executive officials, the Head of the CoE Office, representatives of the Courts, Public Defender Office, lawyers and NGOs on human rights were cognizant with the results of the CoE and EU study.
The Chair of the Human Rights and Civil Integration CommitteeSofo Kiladze addressed the attendees, speaking about importance of enforcement of the European Convention and the Court decisions and the steps to be made by the state for implementation thereof. “The role of the decisions of the Court and the European Convention on Human Rights is undoubtedly important not only for human rights protection but for democratic construction and EU and NATO integration. Naturally, we encounter challenges in this process and try jointly to deal with them. One of the directions of the Human Rights Committee is development of the mechanisms of institutional guarantees of human rights and hence, this issue is of utmost importance for us to further development the decisions of the Strasbourg Court and Convention Provisions on the institutional level”.
The Head of CoE OfficeCristian Urse estimated the meeting and stated that it concerns the presentation of two studies on application and implementation of the European Convention. The similar meeting was held in last April and it has become the tradition. “It is important to maintain high expectations towards harmonization of Georgian judicial practice with ECHR. The joint project of CoE and EU aims at facilitation to provision of fundamental rights of the citizens of Georgia and for the Judges, Prosecutors and lawyers in their routine activity”.
The meeting was held within the CoE and EU joint project “Application of the European Convention on Human Rights in Georgia and Compliance of the National Legislation with European Judicial Practice”, being the part of the EaP Program Cooperation Frame.

  • Georgia: Statement by the Spokesperson on the appointment of Supreme Court judges

    On Wednesday, the Parliament of Georgia appointed four Supreme Court judges for a life-long term. Such appointments, made before the existing shortcomings in the nomination process were addressed, are not in line with the recommendations of the OSCE/Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and of the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission.

    These latest appointments contradict the commitment to ambitious judicial reform made by Georgia’s leaders in the political agreement of 19 April this year, and restated on 28 July. This included addressing issues in the Supreme Court nomination process before proceeding with appointments of the judges. These actions risks further undermining judicial independence and public trust in the Georgian justice system. 

    The European Union reiterates its calls on the Georgian authorities to strengthen the independence, accountability, and quality of the judicial system, including of the High Council of Justice, through a broad, inclusive and cross party reform process. The European Union reminds that, while it remains fully committed to support Georgia’s reforms in line with the EU-Georgia Association Agreement, the EU’s assistance to Georgia remains conditional on progress on key reforms, including on judiciary.
