Today, June 24, the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili, announced that those fined for breaking Covid regulations are to be exempt from paying the fine.
“With my initiative, two bills have already been submitted to the parliament, according to which more than 245,000 of our fellow citizens and 344 legal entities will be exempted from the administrative fines.
“We are talking about the unpaid fines of about 76 million GEL imposed for violating the rules of isolation, quarantine, and wearing a face mask during the pandemic.
“During the pandemic, many of our citizens and businesses were affected and these fines are an additional burden for them. Of course, it is necessary to follow the regulations when managing the virus, but it is important to alleviate the economic situation of our citizens, and this is the reason for this initiative,” said the Prime Minister.
