In addition, attention was focused on the importance of enforcing the interstate disputes won by Georgia against Russia, and the Secretary General of the Council of Europe promised full support to Georgia in this process.

    Deputy Minister of Justice and the Head of the Department of Enforcement of Decisions of the European Court of Human Rights Discuss the Results Achieved as a result of Successful Cooperation

    The visit of the Department of Enforcement of Decisions of the European Court of Human Rights to Georgia started with a meeting at the Ministry of Justice. The purpose of the visit is to assess the progress achieved in the implementation of the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and to plan future measures in cooperation with the Georgian authorities.

    The members of the delegation met with Deputy Minister of Justice, Beka Dzamashvili and Head of the Department of State Representation in International Courts, Nino Nikolaishvili. Within the framework of the meeting, the positive results achieved in the implementation of the decisions of the European Court and the existing challenges were reviewed.

    At the meeting, the legislative changes adopted within the framework of the 11th recommendation of the European Union were positively evaluated, as a result of which the Georgian courts will proactively use the precedents of the Strasbourg Court, and thus the Georgian justice system will be even closer to the standards of human rights protection established by the European Court. In addition, as a result of the legislative changes, all the decisions of the Strasbourg Court issued in relation to Georgia and significant precedent decisions issued in relation to other countries will be translated into Georgian by the Legislative Herald of Georgia, which will contribute to raising awareness among the public and in legal circles.

    In terms of legislative changes, it was also positively noted that from 2022, the investigation of facts of violations of the Convention on the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms established by the European Court or its Additional Protocol became subordinate to the Special Investigation Service.

    As it was mentioned at the meeting, according to official statistics, the total number of cases against Georgia in the European Court has decreased dramatically. In particular, by 2011, the European Court of Human Rights had 3,045 cases filed against Georgia, and as of January 2023, only 147 complaints filed against Georgia are considered in the Strasbourg Court, which is a historical minimum for Georgia during its membership in the Council of Europe. During the meeting, special attention was paid to the issues of enforcement of decisions taken on interstate disputes between Russia and Georgia and their importance for the victims and the Georgian society.

    Within the framework of the visit, meetings will be held with all relevant agencies involved in the process of enforcement of the decisions of the European Court, including the General Prosecutor's Office, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Special Investigation Service, the Parliament of Georgia, the Supreme Court and the Higher School of Justice.

    Rati Bregadze: "Cyber Security Is an Integral Part of the Immunity of the Modern State"

    Since 2012, the Ministry of Justice has been one of the main regulatory and supervisory agencies in the field of cyber security in Georgia. The Ministry of Justice is responsible for the safe delivery of government services and raising public awareness in the field of cyber security.

    Minister of Justice Rati Bregadze delivered a speech at the cyber security forum.

    "In the 21st century, in the technological era, the digitization of many areas has, on the one hand, greatly simplified life, and on the other hand, it has also given rise to many challenges. A few years ago, it may have been considered a sci-fi fiction that public administration would be completely digital, but today it is already a reality. In the field of justice, administrative acts, laws, court decisions will be advanced to a significant extent through artificial intelligence. Therefore, the more the digital sphere grows, the more threats there will be in the future. Therefore, cyber security will be given even more special importance in the future. Cyber security is an integral part of the immunity of the modern state, and taking care of it is one of the main challenges that any modern state can face.

    In addition to local security, security also has an international dimension, and that is why close cooperation with our international partners is one of the main priorities for international security. I am pleased to represent the Ministry of Justice at this forum, where the Digital Governance Agency plays one of the most important roles in the country, even in ensuring the digital security of the private sector. All this requires a broad forum, cooperation both at the inter-departmental and international level, and therefore we thank the Prime Minister, who chairs this forum, as well as Minister of Internal Affairs, Vakhtang Gomelauri, and all the members of the National Security Council, on behalf of the Ministry of Justice, for organizing this forum; as well as for each step taken to ensure the security of the state. We declare our full readiness to cooperate with all agencies to the best of our ability," said Rati Bregadze.

    Representatives of Georgian public agencies involved in ensuring cyber security, foreign experts from partner countries and representatives of diplomatic missions also participate in the event.

    The Deputy Minister of Justice discussed the results achieved as a result of successful cooperation with the Head of the Department of Enforcement of Decisions of the European Court of Human Rights.
