In these 12 recommendations, it is clear that justice and bringing this reform to the end - Salome Zourabichvili

We have neither strong institutions, nor respect for institutions, nor justice. Such a statement made today the President of Georgia at the event organized by Eka Beselia’s party, where recommendations for justice reform were presented.

“In these 12 recommendations, it is clear that justice and bringing this reform to the end is the main thing and it is the main thing because it is the means, the way for us to get out of the Soviet system.

There is no other way, everything else will be based on this. Protecting human rights, protecting business, setting European protection standards, combating discrimination, determining whether or not wiretapping are necessary (by the way, I’d like to say that I lacked your support a little when I vetoed a very un-European law. It doesn’t apply to everyone, but it applies to some), establishing the inviolability of private property, that is, everything that we generally call democracy - everything goes through justice.

If there is no justice, then nothing is protected. An agreement on justice reform is a way for us to do what we don"t know how to do-depolarization. Not only we do not know, but no one knows, the European guidelines and requirements do not specifically say what and how to do, but it is clear that this means that we should be able to agree with each other on how to proceed with the reform of justice”, - said Salome Zourabichvili.
