Announcement of the Government of the A/R of Abkhazia

The Government of the A/R of Abkhazia is concerned about the information reported during the 46th meeting of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) on May 31 of the current year in Gali, by the Abkhaz side regarding termination of "criminal persecution" by the De facto structures of Abkhazia to Rashid Canji-Ogli murder of Giga Otkhozoria.

This cynical decision confirms that Sokhumi has no desire to detain a murderer of Giga Otkhozoria and find justice in this case. At this time, Rashid Kanji-Oghli's case of committing a crime causes no doubt; there is the strong evidence - a video recording that the entire civilized world have seen. With the decision to release the murderer from responsibility, the de facto authorities have trampled all moral and humane principles, infringed the foremost right of the human being- right to life.

The abovementioned decision once again confirms that there is no concept of human rights in the occupied Abkhazia that is controlled by Russian military machine unconditionally and absolutely, especially when the issue concerns the Georgian nationality. It seems that the concepts of justice and fairness do not apply to the guilty of Abkhazian nationality.

It should be noted that statement on the termination of "criminal persecution" by de facto structures of Abkhazia towards the killer was made in the frames of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) in Geneva International Negotiations, that's aim and objective is to represent discussion the similar criminal facts and further reaction. Within the framework of the above mentioned mechanism, participants should take a decision on the issues of active involvement of representatives of international organizations. Nevertheless, Abkhazian participants, unfortunately, refused to detain a murderer and implement a constructive cooperation in the framework of IPRM for justice. The "arguments" of Abkhazians as if the Georgian participants did not hand over properly prepared materials within the IPRM is totally unacceptable. In this case we are dealing with a complete absurd, because all the essential material in the case is in de facto government's hand.

In the current situation, we expect more sharp engagement of the international community and Georgia's friend countries to resolve these problems in order to make it more efficient and effective as the Geneva negotiations process, as well as at meetings of Gali Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism.

Due to the above, Government of the A/R of Abkhazia calls on the co-chair of the Geneva talks, representatives of international organizations, to make every effort to ensure justice and execution of fundamental human rights in the case of Giga Otkhozoria in the Abkhazian region. Neglecting the issue will necessarily create a syndrome of impunity and encouraging criminals and as the result the first victim will become ethnic Georgians living in the occupied Abkhazia.
