Geneva, 7 March 2017

 

Mr. President,

 

Let me thank the distinguished Special Rapporteur, Ms. Maud de Boer-Buquicchio for her presentation and comprehensive report on the mission to Georgia (A/HRC/34/55/Add.1).

 

Mr. President,

 

I would like to make some observations on the issues highlighted by the Special Rapporteur and present an update on the activities conducted since the visit.

 

In order to ensure the effective implementation of Georgia’s reporting obligations before the UN treaty and charter-based bodies, Georgia has developed an all-inclusive national reporting process.

 

Recently, we have submitted Reports under the Optional Protocols to the CRC on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict and on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography.

 

Last June Georgia approved a Human Rights Action Plan for 2016-17, which includes special chapter devoted to the protection of the rights of the child and in September, Georgia has ratified the Optional Protocol to the CRC on a communications procedure.

After the Special Rapporteur’s visit, the Child Protection Referral Mechanism was revised and adopted. The revision was aimed at expanding the list of governmental entities and local self-government, which are involved in the referral process of the child violence cases.

 

Last December Georgia established the Interagency Commission responsible for the implementation of the CRC. The Commission functions as a coordination mechanism to ensure better implementation of obligations on the issues of children’s rights.

 

The new National Action Plan on Combating Trafficking in Human Beings for 2017-18 was adopted. Particular attention is paid to special child–tailored activities and to protection of child victims.

 

Amendments to several legislative acts were adopted aiming at providing access to identification documents for children living and/or working in the streets, which open up access to education, healthcare, social security and other public services.

 

An amendment was also made to the “Law on Domestic Violence Prevention, Protecting and Helping the Victims of Domestic Violence”. Accordingly, the role and power of the social worker was increased.

 

Legal amendments aiming at refining and restricting the conditions of taking child born through surrogacy from Georgia were introduced. The child born through surrogacy will be allowed to leave Georgia if both parents are indicated in the birth certificate issued by the LEPL Public Service Development Agency. The new regulations protect the best interest of the children who are born through surrogacy and reduce the risks of any type of violence or exploitation abroad.

 

Enacting of the Juvenile Justice Code in 2016 is clearly among significant developments as well.

 

Mr. President,

 

Georgia spares no effort to harmonize domestic legislation with the relevant international standards. Up to 25 legal acts were revised and respective package of draft amendments was prepared.

 

In line with the recommendation of the Special Rapporteur, the draft amendments were approved by the Government and were submitted to the Parliament in February. Ratification of the Istanbul Convention is anticipated in the nearest future.

 

Distinguished Colleagues,

 

The human rights situation, in general, and the situation with regard to children's rights, in particular, remains to be a serious challenge in the occupied regions of Georgia. In the absence of international monitoring mechanisms, local residents, including children residing in these regions are continuously precluded from enjoyment of their fundamental rights.

 

Few days ago, the occupation regime closed the remaining so-called crossing points along the occupation line, further restricting freedom of movement of local population, including school children.

 

The very fact that the Special Rapporteur was not allowed to access the occupied regions of Georgia and assess the situation of human rights on the ground, once again illustrates the urgent need of international monitoring. It should be noted, that the access to the occupied regions was denied to other Special Rapporteurs, who visited Georgia in previous years, as well as to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

 

Mr. President,

 

Georgia has submitted the Addendum to the Report contained in the document A/HRC/34/55/Add.2 providing observations and comments on the issues highlighted by the Special Rapporteur.

 

In conclusion, let me reaffirm Georgia’s commitment to the advancement of the rights of the child. Georgia will give due consideration to the valuable recommendations of the Special Rapporteur in implementing its policies.

 

Thank you.
