Law enforcement in Abkhazia


Law enforcement in Abkhazia

Law enforcement in Council of the European Union, Commonwealth of Independent States, and most sovereign states do not recognize Abkhazia as an independent state. As a result, Abkhazia is de facto independent but remains a de jure part of Georgia, with internal security somewhat precarious. It has its own law enforcement organizations such as militia (police) that is subject to the Ministry of the Internal Affairs of the de facto government.

International role in security

The UN has played various roles during the conflict and peace process: a military role through its observer mission (Budapest Summit Decision[3] and later at the Lisbon Summit Declaration in 1996.[4] The OSCE] has increasingly engaged in dialogue with officials and civil society representatives in Abkhazia, especially from NGOs and the media, regarding human dimension standards and is considering a presence in Gali.

Existing government organizations

Abkhazian militia also enforce Abkhaz law. [5]
