Council of Europe and Georgian authorities discuss the draft Code on

 Administrative Offences of Georgia.

The Draft Code on Administrative Offences of Georgia was the subject of a discussion in Strasbourg on 27 March between representatives of the Georgian authorities and the Council of Europe and its experts. They examined the draft Code on the basis of the expert opinion drawn up by the Council of Europe. The focus was on its compatibility with European standards, in particular the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights. Civil society organisations in Georgia have contributed written input.  

Following the detailed discussions of the Council of Europe recommendations and the draft Code, the Georgian authorities will now amend the draft and submit it to Council of Europe for a fresh review.  

The meeting was organised within the framework of the “Denmark’s Georgia Programme 2010-2013 - Promotion of Judicial Reform, Human and Minority Rights”, financed by the Government of Denmark.
