STORIES OF ILLEGAL DETENTIONS ALONG THE OCCUPATION LINE IN GEORGIA

11.09.2019

 
This brochure aims to raise awareness regarding the problems and human rights violations ongoing in the occupied territories of Georgia, Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia. The brochure includes the real stories told by the individuals who have been the victims of illegal detention and kidnapping by the representatives of the Russian Federation in recent years.  

The illegal actions carried out by the representatives of Russia’s border forces, including the installment of the barbed wires, invasion into the territory of Georgia and arbitrary detention of people grossly violates fundamental human rights. When covering these stories and providing legal assessment, often, the facts and details which would give the full picture regarding the actions carried out against the victims and the harm suffered by them, are lacking. Also, often, the coverage by different media outlets and the legal assessments concentrate only on single facts and human rights violations that do not give opportunity to fully perceive the gravity of the crimes. In the brochure, we are presenting the real stories where the victims themselves are narrating what they went through since the moment of the detention till their release. We hope that such human stories will raise awareness regarding the situation existing at the occupation line both locally as well internationally.

The representatives of Human Rights Center conducted the field visits in the villages located along the dividing lines in 2018 where they documented human rights violations and heard the below provided stories. As a result of these monitoring missions, Human Rights Center prepared report where it presented legal assessment of human rights violations and recommendations to various local and international bodies . 

Due to the security issues existing in the occupation line and for the protection of personal information of the victims, the brochure does not specify the name of villages where the crimes are taking place. Also, the names of the victims are not revealed in order to avoid identification of individuals.
