The Georgian government has given property deeds to 122 internally displaced families (321 persons) for the symbolic price of one lari in the western Kobuleti municipality and the capital of Tbilisi, Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava announced earlier today.
Turnava noted these are people who have been living at the addresses for years but until now did not own their living quarters.
“This is not the only case and the Georgian government will continue to assist internally displaced families in the future”, said Turnava.
The internal armed conflicts in Georgia of the 1990s caused the forced relocation of the Georgian population from the Russian-occupied Abkhazia and Tskhinvali regions, after which about 251,000 people became IDPs in the country. The number increased by about 26,000 people following the 2008 Russian-Georgian war.
