Tbilisi, Georgia, Sept. 8
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgia's Interior Ministry can in the near future undergo a division, as a result of which a separate agency will deal with the issues of state security.
This legislative initiative currently exists only as an idea and there is no specific document regarding this issue, but an assessment in this regard is currently underway.
Discussion of this issue at the constitutional committee will start in late September.
The reason behind the changes is the risk of concentration of power in one agency and human rights violations.
Georgian Parliamentary Committee on Defence and Security Chairman Irakli Sesiashvili said Sept. 8 that the issue needs a broad public discussion.
"I believe that inside the system itself it is possible to hold reforms, which will automatically lead to achieving this goal. But, I repeat once again that this is my personal opinion, and this issue needs a wide public discussion," the MP added.
