“You know that human rights and fundamental freedom are regularly violated on the territories of Georgia occupied by Russia. It is of the great concern as none of the international organizations are allowed to the territory. We have the information that the population there encounters lots of problems. Violation of their fundamental rights is of dramatic character. What are the steps by CoE and Secretary General in response to this”, - Guguli Magradze addressed to the Secretary General, Thorbjørn Jagland.

“It concerns as we well. I cannot state these territories are totally closed to us. We had the experts assigned there. Human Rights Commissioner visited these territories but we need more access and we work on this with the relevant bodies. We will be able to do more in Abkhazia than in South Ossetia. Our general problem is “black holes” in human rights and rule of law – in Europe, when CoE has no access. I mentioned it in my annual report on human rights. It is a very sensitive issue but we cannot tolerate the fact that some territories are partially or totally closed to other observers as these territories are under the jurisdiction of Court of Human Rights. The convention is applied to these territories. Thus, we need more access”, - he replied.

Georgian MPs, E. Beselia, Z. Kvachantiradze, G. Magradze, L. Berdzenishvili, Ch. Taktakishvili and G. Kandelaki attend PACE sessions.
