GYLA lodges complaint in Constitutional Court against amendments to the Law on Public Health

The Georgian Young Lawyers Association (GYLA) lodges complaint in Constitutional Court against amendments to the Law on Public Health, granting the Government powers to temporarily impose restrictions after the state of emergency is lifted on May 23. The organization seeks the amendments to be recognized as unconstitutional.


As GYLA says, according to the controversial norms, the Parliament delegates authority to the Government, based on which Georgian Government shall be authorized to determine quarantine measures, including the restrictions on the freedom of movement, property rights, labor rights, and entrepreneurial rights.


On May 22, the Georgian Parliament approved the amendments to the Law on Public Health granting the Government powers to temporarily impose some restrictions after the state of emergency is lifted.
