MEP is not my boss - PM says country refuses to take on additional foreign debt

Prime Minister of Georgia responded to recent statements of local and foreign politicians on the connection between EU financial aid and judicial reforms in the country.

“The Georgian Dream government has already carried out fundamental reforms in the judiciary and remains committed to the tenets of the April 2021 EU-mediated agreement to proceed with court reforms.

Everyone knows what the country’s court system was like when the Georgian Dream came to power. Since then we have carried out several fundamental reforms, including a 4-wave court reform which have made the system far more transparent and accountable.

I want to remind everyone that the Georgian court system is far ahead of the court systems of many EU-member states. All reports and studies confirm this, including those conducted by international, trustworthy organisations. So, we continue the reforms”, - said Irakli Garibashvili.
