Mamuka Mdinaradze, the chair of the Georgian Dream faction, said on Sunday that 38 countries, including Georgia, had appealed to the Hague Court for an investigation into Russian war crimes, resulting in the arrest warrant for Putin a few days ago.
“On March 2, 2022, a week after the war began, 38 countries, including Georgia, appealed to the Hague Court for an investigation into Russian war crimes. Numerous countries, including Moldova, did not join this request.
The Hague Court launched an investigation in response to the appeal. This probe also resulted in the arrest warrant issued against Putin a few days ago.
These are the days when protests took place in Tbilisi on the grounds as if the Georgian government did not support Ukraine… These are the days when the Ukrainian authorities recalled the Georgian ambassador for the same reason…
About Georgia’s legal basis in relation to the Hague Court:
123 countries are participating in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. It currently do not include, for example, Ukraine, Russia, the United States, and others.
Georgia, a Rome Statute member state, is one of 22 nations that have fully adapted their legal framework for cooperation with the Hague Court, in contrast to the 16 EU member states that have yet to adopt a legislative framework for procedural cooperation with the Court,” Mamuka Mdinaradze posted on Facebook.
