President: Finally, the company that violated the labour safety norms in the country will be punished

Finally, the company that violated the labour safety norms in the country will be punished! Violation of the legislation resulted in the death of a 16-year-old teenager, - said President of Georgia, Salome Zourabichvili.

"The adoption and protection of labour safety standards is an integral part of our development as a European state. 21 people have died in the workplace this year and most of the accidents occurred in the construction sector. These statistics are unacceptable!"- Zourabichvili said.

The statement comes after the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia arrested the director of a construction company in relation to the death of a minor at a construction site on Dolabauri Street, Tbilisi.
