EUMM facilitates dialogue via Hotline to release detainees

EUMM has recently noted with concern an increase of detentions near the South Ossetian Administrative Boundary Line. In this context, the Mission has been facilitating dialogue over the Hotline and appreciates the subsequent release of detainees from Tskhinvali.

Restricting freedom of movement directly affects the livelihood of the local population, an issue the Mission continues to monitor closely within its mandate. It is also a standing topic at the monthly Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) meetings in Ergneti, co-facilitated by EUMM and OSCE.
