Public lecture - "Protection of Georgian Sovereignty through Legal Ways" Held at Kutaisi International University

"Legal Security of the Country and Legal Struggle to Defend Georgia's Sovereignty" is a course of public lectures of the Ministry of Justice, which started on May 26 in Ambrolauri on the Independence Day at the initiative of the Minister of Justice of Georgia and will continue throughout the country. Minister of Justice, Rati Bregadze presented the course of public lectures at Kutaisi International University (KIU) today 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 protected at full length; Also, what is the path of the state, the people employed in the Ministry of Justice and various public structures in order 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 has become possible as a result of the successful work of both the government as a whole and the Ministry of Justice right after the historic decision of the Strasbourg court. The state does not belong to any government - it is the property of the people," said Rati Bregadze.

Beka Dzamashvili spoke to the listeners about the difficult and successful fight that the Ministry of Justice was waging against Russia in the European Courts of Human Rights in Strasbourg and the Hague to protect Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

He explained the importance of the fact that the courts of Strasbourg and the Hague recognize the territorial integrity of our country in the decisions and confirm that Georgia is occupied by Russia.

Also, what legal levers does the Strasbourg court provide to Georgia for the confirmation of 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, Alexandre Tevzadze, the Deputy Governors of Imereti, public officials, students, representatives of academia and others.
