MPs Postpone Adoption of 'Liberty Charter'
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 20 May.'11 / 20:01

The Parliament discussed on May 20 with its third and final reading package of proposals known as Liberty Charter, but decided to postpone voting for final endorsement of the bill.
 
The draft law, sponsored by MP Gia Tortladze from the parliamentary minority, includes measures to restrict public display of Soviet and Nazi symbols and restrictions on former Soviet functionaries to hold public office.

The draft also envisages, what the author calls, boosting “security and anti-terrorism measures”, including through video surveillance systems, which should cover all “the strategic facilities” – the measure, which the Interior Ministry has already started to use.

The draft also envisages limited lustration aimed at excluding former Communist Party functionaries and officers of and collaborators with the ex-Soviet secret service KGB from serving in the state structures.
