Georgia claimed another victory in the Strasbourg Court over the August 2008 War. Such a statement made today the Minister of Justice.
According to Rati Bregadze, the European Court of Human Rights has issued rulings in the cases “Bekoeva and Others v. Georgia” and “Shavlokhova and Others v. Georgia” and declared the appeals inadmissible.
“The ECHR has ruled in the cases of Bekoeva and Others v. Georgia and Shavlokhova and Others v. Georgia and declared the appeals inadmissible. The cases include part of the complaints filed against Georgia by the population living in the Tskhinvali region in connection with the August 2008 war.
The ECHR shared the Georgian side’s arguments that the Tskhinvali region was actively bombed by Russia during the war and that the Georgian Armed Forces did not exercise control over the Tskhinvali region and the surrounding area. Therefore, it is impossible to attribute any violation to Georgia. The court also shared the Georgian side’s arguments that the allegations were manifestly ill-founded, as evidence of a minimum standard could not be presented to substantiate their claims”, - said Bregadze.
