Some of Chechens Were Given Refugee Status

Tbilisi.17.08.05. Media News. Georgia’s Public Defender Sozar Subari arrived in Duisi (a village in the Pankisi Gorge) and distributed cards providing for a refugee status to a number of Chechens living there.

The fact is that the Public Defender’s Office studied and discussed the issue of restoration of refugee status for certain Chechens on the basis of a number of appeals. The Office of the Ombudsman found out that forty of them had their status cancelled illegally.

The Ministry of Refugees and Placement, which made a census of refugees last year, did not study the cases accurately enough and did not confirm the reasons underpinning the decision on refusal – the Ombudsman states.
As far as the Public Defender is involved in the case, the Ministry restored their status of refugee.
