Human Rights Center Requests Establishment of International Mission to Assess Human Rights Violation in Georgia during Conflict

The Human Rights Center attempted to gain the attention of international organizations and Western countries about the looming escalation of the violence and military operations in Georgia in recent years, which included widespread human rights violations, militarization of the country, a campaign of war propaganda, violation of rule of law, and the demonstrated sense of total impunity and malfeasance and neglect on the side of civil institutions. Collectively such a set of factors have created fertile ground for the unpredictable situation that now faces Georgia. Such a situation can only further benefit our enemies.
