Since Georgia’s independence in 1991, successive governments have struggled to deal with endemic corruption, organized crime, and various disputes along its borders, which sometimes sparked into armed conflict. Efforts to combat corruption and organized crime through its “zero-tolerance” policy on crime degenerated into extensive human rights violations. These human rights violations most notably involved torture and ill-treatment in detention, arbitrary arrests, and denial of due process protections, as well as confiscations of property.
