Chairman of the political group “European Socialists” of the Parliament of Georgia, Fridon Injia, at the meeting of the Committee on Legal Affairs, where the draft laws initiated by “People’s Power” were discussed, asked questions to the rapporteur of the project, MP Guram Macharashvili.
Two different draft laws initiated by “People’s Power” were discussed in the first reading at the session of the Legal Affairs Committee of the Parliament. In particular: “On Registration of Foreign Agents” and “On Amendments to the Criminal Code of Georgia” in the first reading and the draft law “On Transparency of Foreign Influence”, also in the first reading.
“Two draft laws have been introduced, one is the so-called Russian law, which is very liberal, does not give anything and is a half-law, and I agree with the statement of my colleagues – “No Russian law!
I think that this law should be stricter in Georgia today.
As for the United States of America, such a big country as the United States of America, with its Central Intelligence Service and Central Bureau of Investigation and systems, it has adopted this law since 1938, and this law is working.
This law operates based on the interests of the country, the United States of America.
We are a small country, maybe our country does not need such a law, if it is needed in order to increase the degree of independence.
Today we are talking about the Constitution and Article 78 of the Constitution, what do you think about the record of the country’s integration into European structures, is this integration or not, if we adopt European or American law?! Or will we adopt a law whose content and spirit will be European or American?!” Fridon Injia said at the session.
