Companies will be fined 30 000 GEL for violation of construction safety

Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze made a statement at the government meeting about a number of workers who have died on construction sites.

He stated that the number has increased recently and this is why the amendment to the law on construction regulations has come into play, which will intend to provide maximum security for people employed on construction sites.

“Sanctions on violating security rules, as well as illegal constructions have increased significantly. I would like to thank the Parliament of Georgia for productive cooperation. I hope that with these changes we will ensure the maximum safety of the people employed at constructions. If we look at the statistics, the number of people who died at workplaces has increased in recent years and in recent months, which is categorically unacceptable for us,” said Kaladze.

The fines amounted 3000 GEL before the amendment, while now the companies will be fined with 30 000 Gel.

50 Georgian citizens deported from Germany

Germany deported 50 Georgian citizens for violating visa-free regime.

The citizens of Georgia arrived in Tbilisi on a special flight.

The citizens of Georgia, who asked for the asylum in Germany, were also expelled. There are children among the deported as well.

As reported by Georgians the court made a decision on their deportation. People were picked up from their houses and taken to the airport.

Frontex - European Border and Coast Guard Agency is monitoring the process. Their representative, Irma Tsiramua made a comment on the deportation.

“The reason is that Georgian citizens do not have a reason to seek an asylum in Germany,” said Tsiramua.
