Georgia, Tbilisi, March 31 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
International human rights organization Amnesty International published a report in 2009 about fulfillment of the EU order dated 2006 by the EU countries. In this regard, the Georgian Interior Ministry spread this statement.
It is noted that the EU countries were limited to export certain equipment by this decree, though its use is not limited by law enforcement agencies in those countries. There are legal errors in the report, which allow countries to export now. Examples are cited. This extensive report mentions Georgia twice as a country towards which two EU member-states, presumably, avoided the EU's order.
Unfortunately, Georgia is characterized by only one proposal. Moreover, it is messy, and even erroneous. The report, citing unconfirmed sources, notes that, ostensibly, a German company sold electric shocks to several countries with a violation of the law. An Internet-source specified in the report can not be found. It is impossible to examine the circumstantial evidence (if any) and answer them. Thus, it is impossible to determine the validity and source of information.
Georgian Interior Ministry has never bought any equipment in Germany. The Ministry has only cars made in Germany, and those purchased from Volkswagen's local office. Similar chaotic record was fixed in the report on the Czech Republic's export.
The report also cited Mr. Nowak's statement (UN Special Rapporteur) from the report for 2005, which a) is not from this report, and b) refers to precedents of torture in 2005.
Georgian Interior Ministry certifies that it is ready to cooperate with 'Amnesty International' and the organization will provide all necessary information to correct any errors made in the report. They were probably mechanical. Everyone can make mistakes when it deals with such an extensive material.
