Tbilisi. The Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association and Human Rights Education and Monitoring Center consider that the established vision of judicial reform needs to be changed.
“On October 8, the Venice Commission published its opinions about latest legislative changes in regard to composition of the Supreme Court. Although an evaluation of the project was requested by the Parliament itself, it did not wait for the report and approved the draft on September 30. As it was expected, this hasty step of the legislative body was negatively appraised as by the Venice Commission itself, as well as by the European Union and co-rapporteurs of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) for the monitoring of Georgia. It is clear to us that effectiveness of a management system, based on the principle of majority (majoritarianism), serves only to increase injustice and enhance existing centers of power. Therefore, we see the solution in arranging inclusive, consensus-oriented decision-making mechanisms”, - is noted in the statement.
Tbilisi. Green Alternative considers it illegal to build a park on the territory of the former hippodrome without consulting the public and proper evaluation.
“It should be noted that the Tbilisi City Hall already violated requirements of the legislation of Georgia when it initially made the most important decision for the environment of the city and residents of Tbilisi, and only then informed public about it. The City Hall thus violated requirements of the Aarhus Convention, which states that participation of the public should be ensured at an early stage when options are open and the public has the opportunity to participate in it effectively; while the results of public participation should be paid due attention. We call on the Tbilisi City Hall to comply with requirements of the legislation of Georgia and to not start illegal works on the territory of former hippodrome”.

These articles are an attempt to provide a little more knowledge about the Adjara region and Muslim Adjarians - to describe conditions, in which highland Adjara resident women live: unequal economic situation, tough working conditions, inaccessibility to health and education, as well as isolation characteristic of a geographic and cultural periphery, besides, to show how agency of Muslim women is manifested”.
Tbilisi. As Myth Detector informs, on October 3, 2020, Tvalsazrisi ge published an interview with Nona Agdgomelashvili, a therapist and astropsychologist, titled: “You must know that face mask has categorical contraindications! Alarm of Doctor Nona Agdgomelashvili”. In the material, the respondent talks about the disadvantages of using a face mask and notes that face masks can intoxicate humans with carbon dioxide. According to her, face masks maintain their effectiveness only in a sterile environment and not, for example, in public transport.

As the World Health Organization instructs, the face mask is one of the effective means in terms of self-protection against the virus and plays an important role in preventing the spread of the disease if it is used with full adherence to recommendations and accuracy”, - is stated in the blog post.
