On October 15, 2013 the Georgian civil society organizations made a statement on planned Khudoni Dam project in Svaneti, Georgia. The organizations stress that high level officials, including Prime Minister and Minister of Energy neglect legal procedures on decision-making over the planned project, as well as exert pressure on competent authorities and project-affected communities. They also regret that an unhidden campaign is underway against the persons and organizations critical to the Khudoni HPP project aimed at undermining their reputation. The undersigned organizations demand to return the decision-making process on Khudoni HPP project to legal framework. They also call on the Prime Minister and the Energy Minister to refrain as much as possible from lobbying the investor’s interests, exerting obvious pressure on competent decision-making authorities and project-affected communities and attempting to discredit environmental organizations.
