Additional Human Rights Trainings for Judicial Assistants

19 June 2018 Additional Human Rights Trainings for Judicial Assistants

On May 11-12 and June 9-10, USAID/PROLoG in cooperation with the EU4Justice Judiciary Support Project, conducted two human rights trainings for criminal chamber judicial assistants from Tbilisi and Kutaisi Appellate Courts. Both trainings were conducted by human rights expert Besarion Bokhashvili, and covered international human rights standards pertinent for penal adjudication.  Mr. Bokhashvili discussed topics of the European Convention on Human Rights, such as right to life (Article 2), prohibition of torture, inhuman and degrading treatment (Article 3) as well as relevant aspects of right to a fair trial (Article 6).

An additional set of trainings was conducted on June 8-9 and June 15-16. It covered the Constitutional Court's primary areas of practice and focused on requests by the common courts for an opinion from the Constitutional Court. Konstantine Vardzelashvili, former deputy Chairman of the Constitutional Court, conducted both trainings, which were attended by 44 judicial assistants from both Tbilisi and Kutaisi Appellate Courts.  

In the coming two months, the experts will engage in hands-on mentoring for the judicial assistants using their actual cases. Through the combination of classroom study and mentoring, the overall program will strengthen the judicial assistants’ legal skills and their knowledge of international human rights standards.

USAID/PROLoG is actively engaged in strengthening judicial education in Georgia and continues to support different activities and trainings in this direction.
