Parliament Approving Changes to Law on Common Courts
The Parliament approved the draft law on Common Courts with 101 votes in III reading.
The Chairman of the Human Rights and Civil Integration Committee, Mikheil Sarjveladze, while presenting the draft law, noted that this document fulfills the 11th point of the EC’s recommendations.
"Let me express my gratitude to the working group. As you are aware, this package completes the eleventh of the twelve-point recommendations. We can say that after today's vote, this point has been fully implemented, and I would like to thank everyone who contributed to it. I want to note that practically all recommendations and opinions that emerged within the framework of the working group are reflected in this legislative package in the draft of the amendment of various legislative acts”, - Mikheil Sarjveladze remarked.
The essence of the change lies in the fact that the existence of a structural unit with the function of analyzing the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights will be mandatory in the Supreme Courts and Courts of Appeals, whose function will be to facilitate access to the case law of the European Court of Human Rights for judges, to periodically analyze the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and to carry out information and publishing activities in this direction.
