Georgian Lawyers Help Persons with Disabilities Better Understand Their Legal Rights

The Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA) with USAID Rule of Law Program support and in cooperation with the Union of Deaf of Georgia held two awareness-raising meetings with persons with hearing and speech impairments in Zugdidi and Tbilisi.  

The informational meetings took place on November 10 in Zugdidi, and on November 18 in Tbilisi. A total of 31 people attended the meetings led by GYLA lawyers.

The GYLA lawyers informed the attendees about their procedural rights and the obligations of law enforcement agencies based on procedural legislation. In particular, they discussed the protection of accessibility principle and the forms of communication with people with disabilities that should be provided while police carry out investigative and procedural measures. The meetings were interactive, and participants asked various questions about their rights.

These two meetings were held in the framework of the USAID Rule of Law Program-funded project - Strategic Litigation for Vulnerable Groups.
