“Current version of the law does not demonstrate legitimacy and the proportionality test is not met either”, - the Venice Commission evaluated the amendments made to the Law on Electronic Communications and Broadcasting in Georgia in July 2020.
The Law on Electronic Communications was changed last year and as a result, Communications Commission was empowered to appoint a special manager to electronic communication providers in Georgia in order to remedy certain unlawful acts conducted by such operators.
The amendments were mainly caused by the dispute between the Communications Commission and Caucasus Online. However, the commission used the amended law against this company in October 2020.
By letter of 17 November 2020, the Venice Commission received a request of the Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe for an opinion on the “recent amendments to the Law on Electronic Communications and the Law on Broadcasting in Georgia”.
The shareholder of Caucasus online NEQSOL Holding appealed to the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
The decision of Venice Commission reads that based on the analysis, the current version of the law does not demonstrate legitimacy and the proportionality test is not met either.
